Blue Flowers!

These cards do NOT make me blue!  I LOVE them.  They are based on a card design by Dawn McVey.  Her card is at the end of THIS post.  Be sure and scroll down.  Pretty card, huh?  Dawn made hers for the release of THIS die, Bloom Builders #3.  I loved the card, so I made mine with what I had.  I just had gotten Flower Shoppe Cricut Cartridge so I used it.  I cut a series of 12 flowers from 3"-1".  I stacked them together and sewed them with button twine and a button.  A PTI Doily Details white doily, green, inked cardstock cut with Sending You leaves and a blue Love Lives Here butterfly.  PTI Double Ended Banner in white was layered over a blue snip of Medium Scallop border.  The sentiment was stamped on the banner.  The card base is 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock.  It is a side fold card.  The blue panel is 4x 4 3/8.  The first card has a larger flower and I like it better but I think the layout of this card is stunning!
Thank you Dawn!  You are such a great inspiration.  I have a couple of more cards I copied off of her blog I will be posting, next.
Thank you for looking at my blog!
