Island Flower Mother's Day Card

I think I'm on a roll with the new Island Flower Bigz die!  Or maybe it's just my fascination with 3-dimensional flowers on cards these days.  Here's a card I created using both the Island Flower and the Stampin'Up! Exclusive Blossom Party Bigz die as well.  I even threw in the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch, which layers nicely with the big flower in the Island party die.  Doesn't this have summer written all over it?  Here's a look at the full card:
I think my current new favorite background is the Impressions Square Lattice embossing folder - it gives such a fun, almost canvas-like texture to the cardstock.  Did you happen to notice the pink circles peeking out behind the flower on the top note die?  Well, I also incorporated the stencil technique by making my own polka dot pattern on cardstock.  How'd I do that?  Well, I created a top note template and then punched random circles of different sizes on it.  Then I layered it over my clean Whisper White Top Note die and sponged in my circles.  After that, I put the top note piece of cardstock in the embossing folder.  My end result -  a fun pattered and textured top note die!  Hope you like it!

Have a great day and I'll catch you guys later!
