Bunches of Thanks!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try, SFYTT!!! What a FUN sketch with tons of circles (which I LOVE!).

I also made this card for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge, Floral Fantasy!

To start, I stamped Flopsey's Flowers from My Favorite Things in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I stamped the flowers that he is holding two more times, colored them with Copics, cut them out and popped them up on Foam Tape. The center flower is popped up one level further than the others. I added Walnut Stain Distress Stickles to the center of the flowers as well.

All of the patterned paper on my card is Togetherness by Cosmo Cricket (I am blowing through this paper...good thing I have a back up!!), and I used Circle Nestabilities to cut out all the circles. I layered them on more circles cut from Choice Buttercream.

In addition to the flowers that Flopsey is holding, I added more floral accents using the awesome Die-Namics Flower Trio and Leaf Trio Duo from My Favorite Things. I cut the flowers out of Sunflowers Medium and the leaves out of Intense Kiwi. I tucked the smallest leaves into the flowers that Flopsey is holding. I attached the flowers to the circles with Cherry Red Brads by American Crafts and finished off the card with some vanilla thread. The sentiment, "Bunches of Thanks" was stamped directly onto the patterned paper.
