Bright Flowers

Yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS was anneiht, and I was so impressed with her gallery that I ended up creating 4 cards! This one was inspired by this card of hers... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/533584?what=allfields&name=annieht

My card base is Stampin' Up Groovy Guava, and I sponged a little Colorbox Rose Coral ink around the edges of it. The flowers are stamped on SU! Confetti White cardstock in Colorbox Yellow Citrus, Rose Coral and Rouge, with Moss Green for the flower stems. The flowers are from Papertrey Ink's Green Thumb set. I rounded the corners of the confetti piece and matted it with a piece of SU! Pixie Pink cardstock, also with rounded corners. I stamped "thanks" onto a piece of Marigold Morning cardstock using Rouge ink, punched it out using my SU! Word Window punch, folded it and adhered to the side of my focal piece. I cute a 2 3/8" circle out with my Fiskars circle cutter, punched a 1 1/2" circle from the center (Marvy punch) and then scalloped the outer circle using my corner rounder. Each scallop is punched with a 1/16" hole. This was adhered to the card using pop-dots to highlight the flower! On a strip of SU! Marigold Morning cardstock, I used my paper piercing tool to poke holes across both edges, then tied this pretty plaid ribbon around it that I found at Archiver's. This was adhered to the card, and then the focal piece was slid under the ribbon and adhered. I absolutely love how bright this is, and hope you like it, too!
