OWH Sunday Sketch

I have a friend having a wedding shower this week and a friends daughter having a wedding shower this week.  I need shower cards!!!  Both weddings are out of town (in sunny warm tropical locales) so I thought bright happy colors would be good.

I used the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog Sunday sketch for the layout and decided to try a little floral die cut layering (extremely inspired by PTI bloom builder mum die being released tonight).  While this flower isn't as fluffy and mum-like as the one in Nichole Heady's tutorial, I still like its dimension.

I used 2 of each size Beautiful Blooms #3 die, lined them up, secured them with a rhinestone brad from SU! them fluffed the petals up a little but to give it some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Framed, Fillable Frames #8, Polka Dot Basics [PTI]
