Friends make Life Blossom

Good Morning!! I made this card for Amy Rysavy's Friday Sketch #36. For this card i used Amy's new set Build a Holiday for the flower pot and stems of the flowers. I'm really having fun with this set, i'm challenging myself to find more ways to use it other than for the holidays. I paperpieced the flowers for my pot, added some colored rhinestones to the centers and pop dotted them to the stems. I matted my image and adhered it to my base card. I used my embossing folder for the background and used a punch for the 3 flowers in the circles. I added my sentiment and it's finished. Pretty simple card, but i really like how it came out. This is such a neat sketch amy came up with, i so encourage you all to try it. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a Wonderful rest of your day!!!

Rachel, this is so lovely. Good for you to think outside the box. I have a hard time justifying the purchase of seasonal stamps, so I'll be watching closely to see what you do.
