CASED Card From Chat

Today I cased a card from the blogger Chat Wszelaki from Me, My Stamps and I.  She has CASED the card from someone and I CASED the card from her!  I have a former co-worker that is having a birthday on Tuesday and this card was perfect for her.  She loves her flowers and was always bringing fresh flowers from her garden to work to share with others.

The colors used are Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Lucky Limeade along with Whisper White.  the DSP are from scraps that I had as well as the bow.  I used the herringbone embossing folder and the Mixed Bunch stamp set as well as the Mixed Bunch coordinating punch. The flower pot I just cut out by eyeballing it.  The bottom of the pot is 2" and the top is 3" and I just took scissors and angled my cut on both sides.

Of course, I had to decorate the inside of the card!

I used the same colors and the scallop border edge punch (I also used it on the flower pot on the front)

After I took pictures, I noticed I did not add any leaves to the flowers so I real quick made a couple of leaves out of lucky limeade and attached those.

I also added tiny brads from the brights collection to the center of two of the flowers and used the retired stamp set Circle of Friendship to the center of the middle flower.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!
