Floral Hello

Hi everyone! I love all the texture on this card; plus, I feel like I sort of "re-purposed" a die. I hope you enjoy my card.

What I Used to Make this Card:
White Card Base
White Cardstock
Various Colored Cardstock
Green Cardstock
Darice Floral Vines Embossing Folder, 1218115 (got mine at ConsumerCrafts)

Plain Butterfly Wreath
First thing I did was cut out out the wreath die in green, thinking that I would attached the flowers from the Floral Confetti and the green would be the stems and leaves. Well, let me tell you, I ended up with a huge amount of flowers; in fact, you will be seeing a card I made with the leftovers very soon.
The Flowers

Once I had my flowers and wreath cut, I worked on my craft mat so that any glue leaking wouldn't be an issue, since I knew I'd be gluing things in places they technically didn't belong.  It took me days to get the placement of the flowers where I wanted them (please don't take me literally - I typically work on a few projects at once, so when I say days I really mean some time each day, for a few
Placing the Flowers
days. Clear as mud?) but I finally did, cleverly covering all the butterflies, and I even snuck a heart into the design. 

Setting the wreath aside to dry fully overnight, I wasn't sure what else I was going to do to the card. I could have left the card alone after I placed the wreath on it,  but I felt a bit more was needed. Using white card, I embossed a piece that was about 5 1/4" x 4" using the Floral Vines Embossing folder.  Liking what I saw, I still felt there was one thing missing.  I had the Hero Arts Stamp & Cut set on my desk (ok, truthfully, I
KNEW it was on my desk but it took me a few minutes a while to find it.  Once I did, I used the

die to cut out "hello" in lavender cardstock.  This card is so colorful and bright in person; I'm very pleased with the outcome.
