Petite Petals X 4

This was a quick, fun card that we made at the Occasions/Sale-A-Bration party last weekend:

But after the guests left, I wanted to make one that was a little bit fancier. I added rhinestones to the flowers, and that helped somewhat:

But I still thought it needed something "more", so then I added a mat behind the polka-dot DSP to make it pop, added some subtle blossoms on the white (after stamping off on scratch paper), and stamped the greeting in black.  I think that helped a lot!

And then.......
I had to try that layout in a different color!

So, what do you think? I could have kept going with different colors and themes, but thought that was enough for now.  I'll play around with that sketch again soon, I'm sure!

It is very easy to make layers for the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I started with the colored cardstock cut 2" x 3-3/4".  The white cardstock is cut 1-7/8" x 3-5/8". Just make sure the white cardstock is centered in the punch when you punch it! (And use the sanding block to round the edges a bit.)
