While rummaging through my snippets box, I found this die-cut white panel just patiently waiting to be used on a card! I pulled out my SU! Bouquet Bunch and Beautiful Bouquet stamps and matching dies and made a few flowers, stems, and leaves from small snippets of cardstock in red, green and yellow. I lightly stamped the yellow flowers and red flower centers with white craft ink before cutting, then arranged them into a bouquet. Next I found a pre-printed SSS sentiment that fit perfectly on a snippet of yellow/white gingham ribbon that I wrapped around the bottom of the stems and leaves. I added 3 tiny red gemstones and a little black & white twine bow and placed it all on a Daffodil Delight card base and called this one done.
I'm leaving the inside blank as I could use this for a birthday, anniversary, or just a happy wishes card whenever the occasion arises.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
The Paper Players PP553 color challenge using the following colors:
The Flower Challenge #59 - use a die *optional slimline
The Sisterhood of Crafters "Leaf if to Chance" (use a leaf on your creation)
The Snippets Playground Challenge #409 - must use snippets
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're in a cool place today wherever you are. It's quite hot and steamy outside today where I live, so it's time to chill indoors!
I have got to get my hands on a postage background die and this is the card to prove it. I adore your flowers and the gingham ribbon too! Excellent job! Thanks for making the colors shine at The Paper Players!
This is beautiful, lovely cheery flowers and design Carol!
Beautiful card and love all the dies
Don't you love snippet boxes? :-D I find so many neat things in mine that eventually find their home on another card! Your flowers are so cheery and pretty, Carol.
Thank you so much for leaving some love at my blog a while back. Life has been so hectic, and I'm finally having a moment to say 'thank you'!
Super card Carol, the bright flowers really 'pop' against the white background. xx

That panel is so happy to be out of the snippets box, Carol! I forget how joyful red and yellow are together, but you've reminded me with this bright and pretty design! I hope you are staying cool where you are! Hugs, Darnell

Such a beautiful happy card, the flowers and the bright colours look so pretty together. I do like the little snippet of yellow gingham showcasing the sentiment, nice touch x
How cute! This bouquet of yellow flower is so cheerful and sweet, just love the gingham ribbon with the sentiment and the tiny bow! The bouquet looks great on the postage stamp diecut panel and the red layer make the design pop out so well. Well done on using snippets too! :D

Ohhhh I just love this pretty card, Carol! Those flowers are so pretty and I love the colors & design! Glad your stamping & making cards during this recent heatwave! It's been pretty brutal outside, even my dogs go right out and do their business and waiting at the door to go back in! I hope relief is soon in sight as I hate running my ac 24/7! Stay cool my friend! Hugs~
