SUO#152 - Delight in Nature Challenge

Hello and welcome back! Two posts in one day may be a record for me! My earlier post had the card I'm sending out for July birthdays (a couple are belated wishes) but I realized last night that I missed one. The challenge at SU Only provided me an opportunity to create a special card for my cousin in New Jersey.

Here is today's (second!) card:

I purchased the Botanical Blooms stamp set and matching framelits when they were in the Occasions catalog this past spring, but hadn't yet used them. This challenge provided the perfect opportunity. I also used colors that for some reason don't normally appeal to me and even "decorated" the inside.

I used the leaf border to trim the edge for a nice finish. The little flowers are there because I used the "Press'n Seal" method to create my layered look on the front and I ended up with a couple of exposed glue dots. So I covered them up with the small punched flowers!

I hope you like this card and I hope my cousin will too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
