Green Thumb Flowers

I remember how excited I was to get Papertrey's Green Thumb stamp set. It was one of the very first PTI sets and I still reach for it when I'm in a gardening mood. I needed some birthday refills for the ol' stash so I created this springy looking card. I used several elements from the set to create a flower pot of pretty pink flowers. The aqua mist pot was stamped, paper pieced and then attached to the main focal image with pop dots. Pink sequins accent the flower centers. I used Aqua Mist cardstock the focal image mat, along with Aqua Mist Saddle Stitch ribbon and Sweet Blush Satin ribbon. I used my sewing machine to add a few messy stitches to secure the ribbon down. Base card is Kraft with Fresh Snow dots from Polka Dot Basics. Patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Penny Lane Collection. Sentiment on circle is from Mega Mixed Messages. Vintage button with ribbon and twine accents the flower pot.
I stamped the sentiment from Green Thumb on the inside of the card along with some Fresh Snow flowers and a strip of the patterned paper.

Hope you had a great weekend! We did a lot of hard, back breaking work in the garden but it felt good to work together and laugh as a family. It's back to school for my girls tomorrow as Spring Break ends. We had SO much fun, I'm going to miss the little squirts during the day!!

Very cute. Love the little flower pot. Thanks for showing both the outside and inside of the card. Lately I have been paying more attention to the insides. I love the follow through with the paper from the front to inside.

I really have to get some of that paper. Do you think there is any left in the continental United States, or have you bought every single piece they produced???!! :-)
