Stamping 411......Miss You

Happy Monday Peeps!
How was your weekend? 
We had a great one, got alot accomplished and did just enough of nothing to make you feel good.
I have been working on some primitive wood pieces, I may show them to you later.
I also got a Kindle Fire for Mother's Day! I am so stoked about this.
But onto today's card, I put this together yesterday using this week's sketch on the Stamping 411 Blog.
I pulled out a retired hostess set called "Up in the Air", I loved this set because of these flowers, but I do find myself passing it over time and time again for some reason. So I tried to give it a go again to make soemthing I liked with it.

I stamped the flowers three times across the main panel, masking of the butterflies and sentiment that are part of this stamp. I then stamped the flowers a couple of more times onto some scrap paper. I colored the flower heads with my aqua painter using my daffodil delight ink pad. I then cut out a few from the scrap stamped ones and added them to my panel with some dimesionals.
I used some old olive for my stems and leaves.

The base of my card is daffodil delight card stock, I then used Early espresso card stock for the next layer and the DSP on here is from the Summer Smooches and First Edition paper packs.
I used some Daffodil Delight seam binding across the middle and I tried to get a bow on here like the sketch, but it was just not happening.
My squares are made up of  confetti and early espresso card stock. I used my square lattice EF on those.
I added some butterflies made with the beautiful wings embosslit die and finished it off with some basic pearls.
I am eagerly awaiting a box from Mr. Brown today with some new goodies, so stay tuned1
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!

You know I love flowers and butterflies so this is a great card in my books :) Enjoy the Kindle Fire!! I got one for my birthday and love it. Only downside is I can't download apps yet as it isn't available in Canada and there are some sort of regs about that. But thoroughly enjoying the rest of the features!!
