Bloomin Beautiful!

I wanted to make a small card to go with the flower arrangement that we are giving my Mum for Mother's Day so this is what I came up with.

This image comes from the Stampin' Up! set Bloomin Beautiful which is not available in Australia. I stamped the image on Whisper White and coloured it using the colours Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Groovy Guava.

I stamped the image again and coloured it and then cut out some of the flowers and have fastened them on top with Dimensionals. I have also placed a flower on Dimensionals near the bottom of the vase.

From the River Rock cardstock, I cut a square and paper pierced it around the edge and then stuck this on to a square from the Designer Paper Jersey Shore. The white is actually a top folded card and inside is stamped the sentiment. I cut out a square Wild Wasabi piece with my Nestabilities and Big Shot and this just makes the base card. It is just something a little bit different from the usual card folds. I might put a bit of glitter on some of the flowers just to finish it off.
