Flower power!

Wow- this week is flying by. I have been trying to get a lot of things done the last few days so I have lots of posts ready next week while I am traveling for work. 

So here is a very quick little card. I am actually thinking of doing a few more of these to make a set as a gift. 
I used the Freshly Picked cartridge. There are about 3 or 4 potted plants on this cartridge that would go well together as a card set. This is the type of geranium I can grow well. Normally geraniums of this sort  don't do well in my yard. 

I am going to link this card up to a couple challenges listed below. 
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge
Made Especially for You- 3 buttons
My Craft Spot- Scallop Challenge

Here's how I did it...
Red checked paper from Lasting Impressions
All other paper from my scrap stash
Base card is 4"x4"
Scallop cut from Lacey Labels at 3.5"
Flowers/layers cut at 3.25" from Freshly Picked
Sentiment/tag from My Creative Time Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set
Buttons and twine from my stash
