The Paper Players #85: Spring Has Sprung

I was inspired again by Cards Magazine to create this card for The Paper Players.

To create the flowers, I used the Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die. I overlapped six layers of flowers on top of each other to give dimension and the sense of texture. The leaves are from the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. I used the Eyelet Border Punch for the borders at the bottom of the card. I punched them out using the same designer paper I used in the background, again to give a sense of texture, but not to make them pop because I wanted the flowers to be the focal point. The sentiment is from the Word Play Stamp Set and I chose it because I think that it is well suited for this challenge: It's "So Worth the Wait" to see the flowers bloom in spring.

Hope you like my creation! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
