Little B Bouquet card

Another card I am adding as part of a combo set for some in-laws for Christmas.  This is another case I found on Pinterest.  " If it ain't broke, don't fix."   I'm trying to make cards that look pretty or fun, easy to put together but look like they took a long time to make...haha

Lola, at Little Card Maker, got me interested in this die set.  My crafting friends cost me money....you know who you are....haha  I used Little B Bouquet set. The only thing I added was a Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Leaf die.

A2, used distressed inks to make the blue background and the red/orange color behind flowers.

pop-ups behind some flowers for added dimension

used Lil Inker stitched Rectangle die set
