Happy Monday!  I hope you are all having a great day so far.  I was able to get a lot accomplished today, which is good because I'm going to begin working on cards for my Easter class this Friday evening.  If you are interested in attending please let me know.  I only have 3 spots left.

The card I am sharing with you today is one that I made for my class this past Saturday.  To create the flower petals, I used the large petal stamp and first stamped it off onto a scrap piece of paper and then onto my regal rose card stock.  Then I took the inside leaf image and this time I didn't stamp off, I just inked up the stamp and then stamped on top of my first image.  I did the leaves in the same manner using old olive ink and card stock.

Once I had my images stamped, I punched them out using the blossoms petal punch.  When that was finished I used my 1" circle punch to punch out a circle and I then began adhering the petals on top of that circle.  Then I placed another 1" (punched) so saffron circle on top of my flower.  My flower was then placed onto my card front using dimensionals.  Sometimes I'll stack the dimensionals on top of each other if I need my image raised a bit higher, which I did here since I have the petals curled.  I curled them using my bone folder- you will want to curl your petals as if you were curling ribbon with your scissors.

My just for you sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Just Believe.  The sentiments in that set are perfect for the word window punch.  The last thing I did on my card was to add the glitter using my 2 way glue pen.  I almost always add the glitter last because then my card can sit to dry.

I enjoy sharing my work with all of you and it would wonderful if you decided to follow me!  Once I reach 200 followers I will be offering some Stampin' Up! blog candy, so spread the word!

Well, that's about it for today.  I'm off to the post office.  I hope you liked my card.  Make it a great day!
