Flower Mother's Day Card

To make this Mother's day card I started with a yellow piece of 8.5x11 card stock and folded in half hotdog way (best term I have is elementary school lol).
I cut the flowers out with the Gypsy, Gypsy Wanderings cart & Expression. Each flower is a different size and was assembled by folding the flowers a bit into shape then I used a brad to keep 2 of them together and ATG tape for the other. I bent some of the petals back and curled around my fingers. I inked some of the flowers. I added a yellow button to the middle flower and tied purple bakers twine on it.

I cut the vase out with the Gypsy & Pagoda cart. I used blue tissue paper and ripped it into different sized pieces and shapes and then I put them on the vase overlapping some pieces and covering with modge podge after each piece. I put the vase on pop dots.

I used zig glue to adhere the ribbon stems and leafs on the card. And I stamped different flowers on the background of the card with yellow ink. Finished it off with a sentiment on the vase.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
