Hearts Grow Here

Today over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog, our new challenge is being hosted by Gez.  Here is what Gez has challenged us with:

"If friends were flowers, I'd choose you... ALL!

It's time to bloom!"

This week Gez is challenging you to use flowers on your creation.

Take a look at the fabulous Design Team samples for lots of flower power inspiration.

This week you can use any stamps you would like but please only enter once and link directly to your creation.
I combined my challenge card with the Stamp It! Cards Week Challenge in the Moxie Fab World 
where stamping is the predominant element on your creation.  

For my card, I used two stamps, stamping the 2065 Peacock first and then masking it with the flowers from 5318 Hearts Grow Here.  I colored them with my copics and added some Glossy Accents onto the Peacock and some Fruit Punch Stickles onto the flowers.  Initially, I had something else in mind for the top- I wanted to say something like "Miss You...Where you been hiding?", which I ended up chopping off and adding the cute prima flower adorned with a button and my Happy Bird-day! sentiment instead.

Card details:
Stamps: 2065 Peacock, 5318 Hearts Grow Here and 8962 Happy Bird-day! all from Stampotique Originals
Cardstock: Kraft Like a Rockstar, A Blanc Check
Inks: Perfect Little Black Dress, Copic markers
Embellishments: buttons, prima flower, twine, Glossy Accents, Fruit Punch Stickles
