Colorful Layered Flowers

Good afternoon friends... All I can say is I'm glad Blogger is back up online again and that our content is returning.  I was so nervous for awhile! ;{
I have a few cards to share with you today, and here's the first of the lot.  We'll see how many I can get to before the babies wake up.... And we'll just forget for awhile that I really SHOULD be doing laundry...  ;)
Here are the challenges... 9 total I think...  Most are Flower themes though;
I think we must all have garden fever.

Stamp Something "Anything Goes"
Crafty Creations #118 "Anything Goes" - DT Application
The Crazy Challenge #66 "Anything Goes"
Creative Belli Blog #117 "The Letter S" - sparkle, spring/summer, and some serious stash cleanout :)
The Color Dare #100 "Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand" - OK, OK, plus green...

Creative Card Crew "May Flowers"
Crazy 4 Challenges #86 "LOTS of Flowers!"
Everybody Art #141 Flowers!
Secret Crafter #113 "Use up some Old Stash"

I do apologize for the lighting as it's been a bit gray here of late.  It is so irritating for photography.

I have, in fact, been focusing hard in my crafting on using up what I have.  I have so many partial packages that it's not EVEN funny.  The alphabets are the worst though.  This card uses up some old chipboard flowers I had found on clearance, some glitter glue and paper flowers, as well as jumbo pebble brads.  I love the look of pebble brads but it takes a particular kind of card to pull them off, I think.  At least for me.  What do you think?

And the inside:

Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Papertrey Ink}
Patterned cardstock {Bella Blvd}
Paper blossoms {Spare Parts}
Chipboard flowers (Craft Supply}
Glitter glue - {Studio G} - lime green and magenta
Snowflake punch {Martha Stewart}
Jumbo pebble brads {Making Memories} - Fresh Anthology collection
Green gingham ribbon {Craft Supply} - actually I took apart a Relief Society handout from Church...... anyone else do that? ;)........
Sentiment stamp {Hero Arts) - Sky's the Limit set
Ink {Ranger Archival Black}
 Icons {Heidi Grace} - (inside)

Live well, laugh and DO get outside into the beautiful weather this weekend! :)
