Mom's Day Card #1

Can't really tell (guess I shouldn't have used such a bright green in my background), but the cardbase is really a soft yellow - NOT the sickly yellow that it seems!!
Still having fun using the circle punches for things aside from just plain ol' circles. It's always fun to see what the B&T papers will turn out too. In this card, I'm using some CTMH B&T paper (one side has a floral pattern, the other side is a coordinating solid color) and I stamped a little sentiment on the outer edge of each "petal". Once all of the petals were folded, it was quick and easy to put them into a circular patten. Added a bit of foam tape to pop out the tag and flower's center, a scrap of ribbon adds some interest and I think the most time-consuming part was cutting out the flower's center. How about that - a fast and easy card, go on - make a dozen or so!!
