Heart Flowers Valentine - Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet

   I need to get rolling on some Valentine's day cards.  I don't usually need a lot but one can't be in the card business and not have at least a small stack of cards for one of the most popular card-sending holidays!  I made this card last week but didn't get it photographed and edited in time to enter it into the challenge but if you want more inspiration with this layout check out Freshly Made Sketches.

  The Country Floral Lane Suite is just the sweetest for some love themed cards or really any cards that need a soft, sweet look.  The stamp/punch bundle is super and will even punch out images from the coordinating DSP, Country Floral Lane.  I didn't use that DSP here but the other coordinating pack Country Gingham DSP.

  I started with a Balmy Blue card base then a layer of Country Gingham DSP backed with a piece of Basic White.

  The flower/hearts are stamped in Sweet Sorbet and the leaves are Mint Macaron then punched out.  I layered the small heart in front of the larger one and then added the leaves to the bottom to look like a flower bud opening.  

 I cut 3 Basic White squares with the Stylish Shapes dies then layered my flowers on adhering with dimensionals.  I turned each flower a different way to add a bit of interest.

 The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaron on a narrow strip of Basic White and an even narrower piece of Sweet Sorbet lines the bottom of the sentiment.

  A few Sweet Sorbet sequins from the retired Seasonal Sequins pack from the last mini catalog accent the sentiment strip.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
