May SOTM Blog Hop ~ Friendship Bouquet

Hello and welcome to the May SOTM blog hop. 
If you have come here from Tamera Pope's blog then you are on the right track, 
it is one great big loop of creative inspiration. 

This month's set Friendship Bouquet is such a beautiful set. 

I love sunflowers and gerbera daisies and this set can easily be colored to be either. Since my assigned paper pack for this month is Lucy I decided that I would be making pink daisies. 

Here is my card


And here is another view with the band removed so you can see how it opens.
 I love these die cut cards, they are so cute!!


I was recently giving sewing lessons to the teenage daughter of a friend and we were working with grey and pink and I just loved those colors together. So, since I still had pink thread in my sewing machine I thought why not sew on some Grey Wool cardstock as an accent for my card. 

Here is a close up of the sewing on the band closure of the card.


I love how the pink just pops off of the grey wool. I need to do more sewing on my projects!

I also knew that I wanted to use the daisy to make a layered 3 dimensional flower.
 I love the technique of cutting only part of the flower for each layer 
and then stacking them for a 3D effect.
 This set is perfect for that technique.

Here is a close up of the 3D flower. 

I think this set might be getting lots of ink this spring and summer! 
Don't forget that you can only get it throughout the month of May
