Hope Your Day is Amazing

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it's time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Anne Harmon.

April Showers bring May Flowers.  Fill your card with pretty flowers.

As I had just received some new layering stamps/die sets from Altenew, I decided to play with one of these sets for my card today. I am fairly new to layering stamp sets, but I am happy with how this turned out. Selecting colors for the flowers was pretty easy as I also purchased one of Altenew's ink pad sets which contain four colors in graduating colors ... so the work is all done for me when it comes to color selection.
I layered my flowers onto the Altenew Doodled Dots Cover die, die cut in white and then layered onto a folded pink card.

Here is a quick video to see  my card in action.

For the inside of the card I die cut two more of the Doodled Dots Cover dies and adhered them onto the inside.
I added the pop-up mechanism from Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up Card die set. I then adhered another one of the flowers which I used on the outside onto this pop-up.
As Mother's Day is just around the corner, I figured this would make a good card for that occasion so added a Mother's Day sentiment to the base of the card.
I also  adhered a die cut "Mum" to the pop-up flower.
Here is a side view of the inside of the card, so you can see the pop-up portion of the card a little better.
Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Always a treat to see a Frances card, but I'm thinking I need to take another peek at the polka dot die after seeing your card! Lovely! I love altenew flowers! I almost used one - yours is STUNNING!

This is so pretty, Frances. I like how you did the pop-up mechanism. I just bought that die set and am going to try it out soon. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours.
