Flowers of Gratitude!

ODBD Stamps: Grateful, designed by Grace Nywening

Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!
I am popping in today to share a card I made using the Sept. Mid Month Release.   I used the newly released  Grateful set for my sentiment, stamping it in Primrose Petals on some designer paper from a BasicGrey Something Blue pack.  I cut it with the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, and then cut a piece of design paper from an MME Blush pack using the ODBD Custom Vintage Label dies to mat the sentiment panel.  I used a vanilla base and some Light Spring Green paper from Color Mates which I embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and die cut the bottom edge with the new ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Border dies.  I used a vanilla piece to cut the lacey layer, and cut the green layer with the more straight lined die in the set.  Then I cut a whole bunch of the smallest flower in the Pretty Posies Dies from various scraps of pink card stock.  I also cut several of the tiny blossom in the Ornamental Crosses dies set, and sponged the edges with Primrose Petals, and spritzed them all with water.  I crumpled them up and molded them in to loose petals to form my posy blossoms.  I added a few leaves from the same die set, and a flourish from the Fancy Foliage Dies set.  I finished it off with a pearl butterfly from ZVA Creative.  

Thanks so much for looking!  I hope you enjoyed my little hand made flowers today and are inspired to give them a try some time.
