Spring Flower card

I taught a Cheery Lynn Designs card class recently and this was one of the cards we made.  It is a variation of one I did this winter with snowflakes.  I don't often do these type of classes because the prep time is huge.  It took me two days to cut all the pieces for 4 cards for 7 students, ugh!

I used my Scalloped Square Lg Stackers to create the card base, adding a DP panel using the coordinating  Silver Square Stackers.  I used my Mesh Border and my Lady Kate Edger to create the center panel.  The flower was created using my Daisy Strip die; twisting and stacking all 6 flowers from it.  I added two leaf embellishments from my Flourish Leaf Strip (it cuts 5 at a time, how handy is that?). 

On the inside I added another Lady Kate Edger border piece as well as an oval for a sentiment, cut with my Scalloped Oval Little Stackers and coordinating Silver Oval Little Stackers.   Finished size is 5 5/8" square. 

I had one other card to share but one of my students asked if she could purchase it and I gave it to her.  Sadly she forgot to pay me, sigh!  Lesson learned.

What a darling card, Sandy! I just love the papers and the sweet daisy on the mesh. The pink and brown are so pretty. Love the inside of this card too!
