Flowers to "Die" For

I know...corny title for this post, but I'm terrible at coming up with creative titles.

I'm a planner by nature. One of the problems I have when I sit to stamp is I over-think my projects too much. I'm slowly learning to let go and relax when I create. Well, this was one of those days where I allowed my creative juices to flow where they may. I actually enjoyed myself and was quite pleased with the result. This is what I made.
I used my Beautiful Blooms II dies to create the felt flowers. The felt cuts so well. The bottom patterned paper was made using elements from the BB: Tin Types and BB: Botanicals.

Of course, I had to finish the inside of the card too. I used the same dies for the inside and stamped the image.

Thanks for visiting!
