Flower Pot Card

I received some very bright and bold colored cardstock yesterday from my Daughter, who lives in Ohio. She saw a few of my cards on my blog where I used bold and bright colors. (Bold and bright is not my usual style.) I had sent her some Archiver's coupons a few weeks ago and one of the coupons was for 10 free sheets of 8 1/2 x/11-inch cardstock. So, I asked her is she would pick up these sheets of paper for me. She was at Archiver's a few days ago and she got me various colors that are bold and bright. This is what she told me in her note when I received my paper, "I figured I'd get some colors that were bold and bright.... so you can make some more cards". Anyway, I wanted to make a flower pot card and the flower pot is from one of the pieces of the cardstock that my daughter sent to me. I am certain that she wants to see more bold colors in the cards that I make. It was fun making this card and I enjoyed every minute. Instead of using punches like the directions say to do, I stamped flowers on pattern cardstock and then cut them out. I did the same for the leaves. Everything on this card is hand cut. The stamps that I used are: Hero Arts; Artistic Borders CL322, Cleardesign Birthday Messages CL139, Big and Small Flowers CL374 (used the leaf from this set), and Box Plaid S5369. I went to splitcoast stampers for the directions for this card. I went here to find the tutorial. Thanks for stopping buy.
