Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical Hello

Hello!  It has been a bit since I participated in a sketch challenge, so today I decided to see what they are up to over at  Sure enough, they have a great sketch posted.  It's so great, it inspired today's card!

Start by stamping the flower on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock.  
Use your Blender Pen to spread the color over the flower.  
Repeat this process to make a second flower. 
Stamp 'hello' on another piece of Basic White Cardstock, at least 1-1/2" x 3".
Then cut Sahara Sand Cardstock to 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and another piece to 5-1/4" x 4"
Use In the Tropics Dies to cut out the flowers.  
Also, cut a leaf out of a small scrap of Mossy Meadow Cardstock. 
Use Stitched Rectangles to cut out the hello piece.  

Attach two 5-3/4" strips of Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim to the Card Front.  
Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (or Stampin' Seal) and Stampin' Dimensionals, 
attach all of the layers.  

Cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock to 4" x 5-1/4", for the inside of the card. 
(I keep a stack of Basic White Cardstock cut to the size on my desk.)
Finish up by adding a crisp flower to the inside, if desired. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card and it inspired you to get crafty this weekend!
