The Spot Spring Fling Challenge #104

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share my project for this week's themed challenge over at The Spot.  This week's challenge is a Spring themed challenge.  I used the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set which is part of Sale-a-bration.  Speaking of which today is the last day to earn any of the free Sale-a-bration items with your qualifying orders.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card for today's challenge with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  I used one of the Ornate Border Dies (which comes out April 3, 2020) along the edge to cut the floral decorative border.  Next I added a piece of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and attached this to my card front.

I then stamped my sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock along with some of the small blooms from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set.  I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink, and the flowers in Petal Pink Classic Ink and So Saffron Classic Ink.  I then used the Label Me Lovely Punch to punch out the sentiment and a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.  I used the Small Blooms punch and punched out the flowers.  I took the pear pizzazz label and cut it in half and placed behind my sentiment piece so that I had a little colorful border showing to make the border stand out from the card front.  I added the sentiment piece to the card front with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then added the small flowers around the card base with mini glue dots.

 Next I finished off my card by adding a small pearl in the center of each flower.  I also added a strip of the same designer series paper on the inside of the card to and a strip of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock to tie everything in.  This was the finishing touches to my card today.
