I am happy! Both my children are back to school. We all had enough of holidays and were getting bored last two weeks. Now we are back to our routine. Yay!

Sharing a card today I made using Simon Says Stamp's Whimsical Flowers Stamp and Dies.

Hello card

I used the grey diagonal striped pattern paper from the January Card Kit on the background. Then diecut the flowers using watercolour paper. Then squished some diluted Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink in layers on the flowers. Once dry, I stamped the outline of the flower. The leaves are diecut using woodgrain cardstock and squished diluted Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. That gives some texture as well. Layered the flowers and leaves and added some gold glitter dots at the centre. I added some bunched up thread before adhering the flower. The sentiment is from Lil Inker's Designs The gold glitter dots are from Pebbles. Here is a closeup of the flower.

Hello card close up

I had some fillers done to my teeth this morning. The anesthetics are wearing off as I am typing now. Getting sensitive and pain. Not liking it. So I better hop off now and get some pain relief.

Thanks for stopping by!
