Hi everyone!  Today I decided I would play around with my Awash With Flowers stamp set.  This is a set that I just had to have and then it sat on my shelf.  These flowers always make such pretty cards and today I decided to give it a try. 

I made this card for this week's challenge on the Stampin' Up! only challenge blog found here.  Michelle Laycock just celebrated her 10th Anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator so this week the DT members thought it would be a good time to feature congratulations cards.  Congrats to you Michelle, what an accomplishment!

My card also fits this week's Twisted Tuesday challeng found here.  This week's challenge is to create a card using flowerrs, but the twist is that we were not allowed to use roses or rosettes.  What a fun challenge this week!  Who doesn't like flowers, right?!!

I began making my card by stamping my flowers.  I stamped them using early espresso ink and I filled in the flowers using pink pirouette and the leaves using pear pizzazz ink.  My flower panel is raised up using dimensionals.  I'm going to have to use this stamp set more often!  Did I mention that I love these flowers? LOL

My background was scored using my simply scoring tool.  I scored a diamond pattern on my background.  I know it's a little harder to see on the left side of my card, but it's there.

I used my scallop trim border punch along the bottom of my pink pirouette card stock and then in-between every other scallop I decided to add a small basic pearl.

I hope you liked the card I made today!  I'd like to take a moment to say thank you to all of my new followers, you are what makes blogging so enjoyable!  Have a great day!

Patty, this is such a pretty card. I'll be case-ing the "sense" of it since I don't have that exact set. Wouldn't it be perfect for Mother's Day, too?!
