Dotty Yellow Flower


I wanted to make a floral card, and a CAS one, but this wasn't quite CAS enough  to enter into the challenge that I initially was thinking of!!
it is perfect for two STAMPlorations  challenges.

I was inspired by this Inspiration card by Shirley

I took her colours and layout, and stamped and fussy cut the dotty flowers and the stem from two (now discontinued) stamps sets I have on hand, and then layered them onto the card, using thin foam dots between the top layers of petals, and finished it with a clear rhinestone.

I used a yellow washi strip down the side of my card, that looked orange before I unrolled it, but as the yellow 'worked' on the card, and the wee flowers fitted, I used it.
The sentiment is by Montarga (a NZ stamp company).

I am linking this to:

I was inspired by the dots and the orange
