3 Dimensional Flowers

The challenge over at Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #58 is to use 3-dimensional flowers on our cards! I used the MFP Planted with Love set for my card and made some flowers using pink vellum and the MS Hydrangea punches. I did the letterpress technique on the white card stock using Memento New Sprout ink and a floral Impressabilities plate. I colored the image with Copics and cut out the smaller crow in the set and popped him up on a punched branch from the SU bird punch. I hand-cut and crimped the leaves made from pale green vellum and popped a Kaiser pearl in the centers.
Congratulations to my friend Benzi for winning this stamp set in last week's Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge! I know you're gonna love it as much as I do!
That will do it for me today folks! I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Carol, Another great one from you. I love the New Sprout Ink you used for your letterpress technique. It is so soft and prescious looking. The vellum flowers look beautiful. Your little crow gives such a nice pop to the whole card.

So pretty, Carol! I am a sucker for seed packets. Just the packets, I can't make anything grow. I should just throw the seeds away!!!

Carol, I saw this card as I was scanning over your cards and I knew it was the set I won so I had to take a peek at it first. It is just adorable and I can't wait to get mine. That little crow on the branch is too cute. Aren't we the lucky ones winning this set? Your card is gaw-geous!!
