Hi peeps! I didn't have work today so I had some time to catch up to some card challenges. I was trying to think of something other than flowers to put on my card but eventually I ended up with them anyway. I just really, really wanted to use my favorite flower stamp set, Year of Flowers - Violets from PTI. I also wanted to use some of the patterned paper I had just gotten on my trip. I just love the colors on these papers!

I stamped the violets on different patterned papers. Then I cut them out one by one. In some of the flowers, I only used the center and discarded the rest. I wanted to add dimension to the flowers and so I used some foam tape, pearls and rhinestones. I also used the stamp set I won from PTI, Big and Bold Wishes. This has been on my want list for such a long time. I don't know why I kept on pushing back on ordering it. I was so very pleasantly surprised that it came early, I wasn't expecting it until a week or two from now. It was just perfect for this card! :)

Here's the sketch from Waltzingmouse.

Cardstock - white, vintage cream (PTI)
Patterned Paper - thrift shop (October Afternoon), ever after (Cosmo Cricket), sunflower double dot (bobunny), ancestral bird brocade (TPC studio)
Stamps - year of flowers: violets, big and bold wishes (PTI)
Others - labels one (Spellbinders), pearls (Recollections), rhinestones (Queen & Co.)
