Congrats to Dawn (TreasureOiler) for being Featured Stamper. I couldn't make up mind because she's got so many I just love. I chose this as my inspiration: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=93708
I started with GP white cs as the base. I used bazzill cream cs as the first layer. I stamped the flowers with black stazon onto a top note cutout with GP white cs. I adhered onto only orange cs, cut around the top note as the frame. I colored the flowers with SU markers. I stamped the flowers again, cut out and layered the flowers with 3D dots, added mini pearls for the centers. I cut a strip of Bloom & Glow dp, layered with only orange cs. I used my SU matt stack to pierce the holes and added medium gold brads to each side. I also used a large scallop punch onto the bazzill cream cs, used a medium circle punch on only orange cs, then used a smaller circle onto GP white cs. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I also decided to use the MS triple butterfly punch with the same only orange and bazzill cream cs and added 2 mini gold beads. The strip and scallop circle is raised with 3D squares. I added a yellow knitted flower my pen pal made for me, attached a small orange button for the center, used DMC floss and tied a bow, attached with a 3D dot. I really enjoyed making this card.
Things I changed: Image, flipped the top note, added knitted flower verses a button.
