A Floral Thank You

Just under the wire, here's my card for the Shopping our Stash weekly challenge #75 which is to add 3D flowers. I used a stamp set from Hero Arts, stamping the flowers and leaves with Versafine Black ink, and embossed them with clear detail ep. They were all cut out by hand, and popped up on foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set, and the black ribbon and pearls were from my stash. I used 2 different colors of green cardstock and used Copics for coloring the flowers. I had one leaf leftover, so I just had it falling over the sentiment to add a little balance, since the top left corner was so heavy with the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your Monday is going well. One more day and hopefully these annoying robo-calls will finally stop! I HATE having to endure them!!! I wonder if I could find a place on the ballot to write in how much I hate them?  :)

WOW! Carol, this is sensational! That extra leaf is placed in the perfect spot and love the flower image and coloring!! Fantastic card!

Yes, it'll all be over with tomorrow! You could probably write whatever you want on the ballot, but I really doubt if anyone will see it! LOL!

I ran to Michael's, and was not gone an hour. I had 4 robo voice mails when I returned. Yep, I am with you on that one!

You have created some beautiful 3D flowers here, Carol! I love the falling leaf!

This card is striking and delightful all at the same time. Fabulous idea to put the extra leaf where you did. It's perfect. The coloring of the flowers is sensational. It really looks like there is a light shining on them from the right. Your cutting skills leave me envious. I don't even answer the phone any more. If anyone really needs me they can call the cell. All this stuff is a real big turnoff. I don't know why they can't all see that. Almost over.

Love card, Carol. And look at all that great fussy cutting! Cherie would be impressed! LOL. I really like the colors too.
And I know what you mean about all those annoying phone calls, we were ready to pull the phone out of the wall.
