Bunch of Flowers

I'm back with my fourth and last card of the day!  This is for the final challenge at MFT's World Card-making Day Challenge - to make and mail a card.  I know, right?  Actually mailing a card that I make is pretty unheard of.  I have great intentions but then time slips away and it ceases to be timely so I just don't send it.  So dumb!

But this one is going to be mailed - all the way to the US!  I used the colors from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - yellow, orange and black.  I used two oranges and two yellows along with black for my card.  The flowers and leaves were cut from the Stitched Flowers die set and the hello was die-cut from a piece I had clear-embossed with Roses All Over so it has a subtle but pretty pattern over it.  

The card base was ink blended with Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks over the Geometric Grid stencil.

I finished with some Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thanks for visiting!
