Flowers in Circles

I hope you're enjoying your Friday today. Josh (my husband) managed to arrange no work for today, so we're going to enjoy the day. We're planning on playing tennis, taking our dog for a walk, doing a little yard work. Then I'm going to *try* to get him to take me shopping. I find shopping alone kind of boring.

Today's card uses Stampin' Up!'s Big Blooms. My first card with this set, even though the mini catalog will soon be retiring. I used my two circle punches to layer the big circles. The 1/2" circle punch was used for the flower centers. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to extend the middle flower's stem and repeatedly stamped the stem off the edge of the paper for the grass. The designer papers are from the Palette o Prints pack.

I Used:
Stamps: Big Blooms, Papertrey Paper Tray
Ink: Versafine Black, SU! certainly celery, rose red, cool caribbean
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Rose Red, Palette o Prints, Papertrey White
Other: SU! black grosgrain, vintage brads, primas
