Shopping Our Stash Challenge #75 "Flowers"

Shopping Our Stash Challenge #75 
Flower Power- Use your handmade or 3-d flowers!  (your project can include stamped images but it also needs to have at least one flower that is either handmade or a 3-d flower you bought.  Think Wild Orchid Crafts, puffy stickers, Prima's, etc.)
Please join us this week at SOS with your card or project that includes a 3-d/handmade flower of some type! Can't wait to see what all you creative people come up with! For inspiration check out my fellow DT  members' blogs...listed in my sidebar!
My card features a flower called a "Gardenia" that I purchased at www.stampingscrapping.com about a year and a half ago...when they stopped selling them! Now they only carry the white ones (which you can color yourself!). The leaves and stem are Stampin' Up stamps; the HB stamp is from Bildmalarna.
The edge border punch is a Martha Stewart called "Doily".

I am also entering this card in the special anniversary blog hop challenge #4 at Perfect Sentiments.
 The "challenge with a twist" was to make a card with a sentiment that has a bird or a bloom on it, or a combination of both! Obviously I did just the one flower!

What a lovely flower! I love the dimension and colors it gives your card. I think you used the right stamp for the leaves and stem, too. Thanks for sharing your art with us at The Perfect Sentiments.

Hi Sandie! Your sweet art is always SUCH a blessing to me. We're all SO busy with all of our Design Teams, crafting, and of course...life in general. Yet somehow, you always manage to make such cute cards and share them to inspire others. You are a blessing and an encouragement. I really hope that you will consider linking up and sharing your art at Word Art Wednesday. We enjoy the fellowship of others, and would really enjoy having you play along. Have a blessed week, and I hope to see you soon.
