You're One of a Kind

This card was created using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #151.  Wasn't sure what I was going to do with this sketch...it looked like a series of band aids for a Get Well Card but DT Members already had this same idea.  So, back to the drawing board...I didn't want to use just patterned paper for each section so I thought a combination of many flowers would be a great spring card.  
  

  


I cut several flowers from Cricut Design Space, and then stamped them with a variety of colors using the polka dot flower, glued the white flower to each and adhered on card in sets of three using glue and 3D Thin Foam Tape on the ones in the middle and leaving a space for the Sentiment.  



This is a close up of the Sentiment and the pretty bird showing the foam tape layering.  





The inside of the card was decorated on the inside right-hand corner with some left-over flowers, leaving space for a personal note.
