FLOWER die cut reveal-SOUS

Summer is finally here at the North Pole.. Its been so sunny, warm and absolutely beautiful outside, its been so hard to pry myself away from the back yard patio long enough to get some projects done..LOL
and speaking of projects.. This week for SOUS, our very own Leah chose our die cut challenge and its so summer appropriate, FLOWER..
Create your own die cut flower and let me tell you, there are millions of flowers to choose from.. I decided to create a card for today's reveal and here it is:

 I used some of the papers from Prima's 6x6  Botanical collection.  The card measures 6x4..
Had lots of fun using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and my little green monster, the cuttlebug..

Here are some close ups and some details:
The sentiment is by Fiskars "Friends forever quotes!"..  I used StazOn black ink cause it makes the image so clean..
the tiny maroon flowers are a Fiskars punch and the cream colored flowers are the small flowers from the Tattered Florals die..

As are the big flowers,  I also added some gold liquid pearls, orange distress stickles and a black key to the card..

For Supplies used:

Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die
Fiskars flower punch

papers by: Prima "Botanical" collection
Gold liquid pearl
disterss Stickles: Wild Honey

Sentiment stamp: Fiskars

black key (manufacturer unknown)
