Flowerpot Card

Happy Wednesday Everyone!  I hope you have all had a wonderful week.  Mine has been really busy, but good.  As I mentioned last week, one of my co-workers passed away unexpectedly.  Everything at work has been a little off for a few days, so we're trying to get back on track.  I found out that I will be taking over her job.  It's more detailed work, but it also means more money!  Woohoo!  I have been trying this week do to my job plus hers, so it's made for a crazy week.  Not bad, just crazy.  I thought I'd take a few minutes and post something and clear my head before diving back in.

(Please excuse the picture quality - I took it on my desk at work)

My manager asked me to make her a thank you card for a lady in our office.  The recipient is really into bright colors, so I decided to do a bright, cheery flowerpot card.

Here's a shot of the card from the inside.  I got the instructions HERE.  I punched a border in white using one of my Martha Stewart punches and added to the "lip" of the pot.

I glued on all the leaves first, then added the flowers.  All the leaves and flowers are from Flower Shoppe.  

These cards are so simple to make, yet I think they make a great impact.  I really enjoyed making this and layering the flowers.  You know how I am about paper flowers....  They make my heart happy!

Have a wonderful day!
