Hello Everyone - Have you played along with the Classy Cards 'n Such Challenge yet? You can see all of the details HERE

 Today I am sharing my CHALLENGE CARD! This week's challenge is FLOWERS! I tried to use flowers on every part of my card! Beverly has such a beautiful variety of flower papers,3-D Art stamps, dies and flowers - so much to choose from!!

 I hope you will join us. You can see the entire Design Team's challenge cards HERE.

Here are the details for my card. I created a Criss Cross Card  and 2 sheets of light blue cardstock. Each Cardstock measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I layered the Bo Bunny Gabrielle Collection Patterned Papers. on the blue card stock.

Using the JustRite Botanical Butterflies set I stamped in Chocolate Ink and colored with Copic Colors Y21, Y11, Y26, G21, G24, YG17.

I used the following dies and cut them out using my Grand Calibur in brown, pale yellow and vanilla cardstock. The Large Circles Spellbinders, Blossoms Three,and Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish. Using Zots Pop Dots, I added dimension by putting the dots between the layers of chocolate and vanilla cardstock.

Once everything is adhered together, I added some Gold Stickles to jazz it up a bit more. Using Mini Glue Dots, I adhered the Tea Roses Latte flower and added a few Wild Orchid Flowers and leaves to the side to create more balance.

I created a pocket for my card with Celery Cardstock measuring at 3 3/4" x 5" and added a White layer measuring 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". I stamped the flower Spring on the corners and colored them with B21, G21 Copic Markers. Using a Rounded Tab Punch, I added a pull tab and attached it to the top portion using a 1/16th" hole punch and gold brad.
