Floral thanks


Once again, I am challenging myself to make a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks DT search.  As with the last one, I am doing one that stumped me the first time.  This one is from the January 26th challenge (see below).  To be fair, I didn't have these stamps back in January so I think I'm doing the challenge more justice now than I would have then.  To make the layered flower, I just stamped the flower three times, cut two of them into quarters and then adhered them to the back of the main flower. Curled up the edges of the top flower to give it a bit of 3D effect.


Hope you are having a great week and hopefully spring is arriving wherever you are.  We are fortunate to have some flowers (including yellow ones) blooming here.  The weather is finally warming up... it was actually double digits when I walked to work on Tuesday (maybe today too - I'm writing this on Tuesday night...).  Just hope it stays!

Thanks for popping in.
Glenda
