Flowers Say Hello

Another card for the Hero Arts Challenge. It took me two tries to get this card the way that I wanted it to look. I have had this stamp for awhile (only used it once) and decided that I could paperpiece the flowers. Before I finished the card, I messed up and had to start all over again. I stamped the Dogwood stamp in sage shadow ink (stampin up) onto a 4 x 5 1/4-inch piece of a sage green paper. Then I stamped the flowers on a medium color pink paper with Memories Dye Ink -- Ruby. After stamping the pink flowers, I cut them out so that I could paperpiece the flowers to the green stamped image. I made a mask and covered the flowers and then stamped the Grid Pattern stamp over the flowers. Then I cut a piece of white vellum (4 x 5 1/4-inch) and stamped the sentament on the left hand bottom corner in the Ruby ink. After I finished that, I stitched the vellum to the flower image and then attached the brads and attached it to the base card. The grid pattern was stamped with Mellow Moss Ink (Stampin Up).
