Oh my goodness this has been a great week and I have learned so much and gotten so many wonderful ideas.  Haven't you too? I LOVE what Tami has made this week in the blog right before mine, as well as all the other Glitter Queen's blogs too!!

My card "stash" is getting low so I am ready to make some of these cuties I have seen this week to get it back filled up again.  I LOVE to be able to grab a card when I need it - right out of my craftroom!!  So convenient and so special for the recipient to get a hand made card.

Let's take a look at my card for today:

 I absolutely LOVE this embossing folder.  It is so elegant and actually the name is 'ELEGANT LINES'.  ha  After I embossed the whisper white card stock, I used the blossom punch and had it go slightly off the edge of the white card stock when I punched.  I saw this technique on Becky Roberts blog -( Hey Becky, thanks for this idea!!)

Behind the white I layered some fun flowery DSP (sorry, can't remember the name of it.) that has lucky limeade, melon mambo, and concord crush in the pattern.  I made sure some of the flowers were peeping through the hole before I cut it.
 A little closeup here and you can see the DSP layer is peeping out all along the edge of the card too.  The card base is melon mambo and the polka dot ribbon is also melon mambo.  I then stamped with melon mambo ink the middle circle of the blossom and  punched out with the 3/4" punch.
This extra closeup shows you the flower punched out, the middle of the blossom is up on a dimensional and I added a medium pearl in the very middle. Oh, before I added it to the card, I sponged around the edge with melon mambo ink.

Inside I added the punched out white blossom for a little bit of decoration.

I also wanted to show something extra:  A way to make butterflies from this same blossom punch:

These cuties are the bottom 4 petals of a punched blossom of dsp.  I fold the blossom in half and then with a slight curve cut off the rest of the petals.  You can also cut a little bit out between the bottom wing section if you want.  I then sponged some ink in the middle and added 3 rhinestones for the body.  I just lightly arched the wings how I wanted them to be when I put them on my cards.  Aren't they cute? AND EASY!!
