Build a Blossom -- Love it!
Wow! I so love the Stampin' Up set Build a Blossom. It's great on its own, but pair it with the Blossom Petals Punch and the results are fantastic!
The first time I sat down to make a card with this set I was hooked. That card is long gone (to my aunt), but this one is similar. The flower, which uses the biggest blossom, really has an impact. I can't even tell you how many different cards I've made with this flower and no matter what color I use for the flower it turns out great.
And this is just a one layer flower. You can have multiple layers, using the same petal again or using a different shaped petal. I'll show you some of those another time.
Believe it or not, the background on this card is Daffodil Delight Patterns Designer Series Paper. Somewhere between my photophraphy and photo editing the colors became a little muted. The flower is Perfect Plum and the leaves are Garden Green. It's all on a Whisper White base. The colors make a very cheerful combination in person.
