Happy Tuesday, everyone!
I can't wait to share this new card with all of you, today. I got some new Basic Grey patterned paper and I'm just loving it! Several of my cards this week will be featuring it.
I just love my Year of Flower stamps (YOF for short) that I bought from PTI, but I don't use them nearly enough. I'm guessing that it's mainly due to intimidation in coloring them with Copic markers. So, I figured out that paper-piecing is the way to go with these.
I stamped the flowers on the patterned paper with VersaFine's Vintage Sepia. Then I used Filigree clear embossing powder to really make it stand out. I did the same for the stem/leaves and the sentiment on the front. It really gave an extra special look. Hand cutting all of the flowers took some time.......I really am hoping that PTI will have dies for these soon! ;-)

|I just love the dimension these little flowers give the card with some foam tape.|
|I love this birthday phrase on the inside.|
