For the overall design of the card, I used the template from the June 2009 class of Kristina Werner's A Year in Cards class over at Two Peas in a Bucket. You can access a video of her class and a pdf by visiting http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=52&thread_id=2828094. Also, be sure to check out Kristina's Make a Card Monday and Finally Friday videos by visiting her blog at: http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/.

The flowers are made by layering circle and scallop punches. I roughed up the edges of the plain circles to give them more texture.
I used my Cricut Storybook cartridge to create the title and then I used a black Sharpie to color my rhinestone gems.
For the border on the bottom, I inked up my new Technique Tuesday In Bloom stamps. I love this set. It cost me less than $3 when I bought it on sale at twopeasinabucket.com and I know I am going to use it a lot. I love the versatility of being able to place the various flowers in the set wherever I want them. You can see the full set here: http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/shop/technique-tuesday/78066-in-bloom-stamps/?filters=technique-tuesday. Unlike other budget priced stamps, I did not have to condition these before using them for the first time. I just love how Technique Tuesday stamps take ink.
I love doing layouts using pictures from different years. See another one of my favorites here http://eterno-lyyours.blogspot.com/2008/10/scheming-around.html.
Thanks for looking!
