Pretty Little All-Occasion Card...

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope your weekend was a happy one.

Today's card is a little square card filled with soft springtime colors and lots of layering for dimension...and of course, pretty flowers! This time, simple layering with some foam tape gives the illusion that the card is even deeper than it really is IRL. The layers with the dotted and mini rose pattern papers are adhered together...then as one, are attached to the base of the card with a layer of foam tape...

and then the die cut frame is adhered with another layer of foam tape...this allows some of the flowers to nestle down inside the frame and add the illusion of more height than there really is...

In the lower corner, the flowers and a sprig of stamens are highlighted with only a small piece of the end of a pearl flourish...

but in the upper corner, there's a piece of tea-dyed cheesecloth beneath the flowers, along with a loopy cardstock flourish topped with a couple more pieces of pearl flourish...

Patterned papers:  Prima Romantique collection
Dies:  Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares & Classic Squares Small;  Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork;  
My Favorite Things Royal Leaves
Punch:  Martha Stewart Medium Branch      Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts, local craft stores      Pearls:  Recollections
