It seems I've been making a lot of card sets lately!  This one was for my friend, Gail, who had a garden tea last week.  Several people brought hostess gifts, so I made a batch of these for her to use.

I wanted to make something reflective of the rose garden setting, and the Painted Petals set from SU! was ideal.  The leaves are from a Penny Black set, Petal Power.  The tiny flowers and dots were from my peg stamp drawer.

After stamping the leaves onto a die cut stitched rectangle, I started adding the flowers.  Beginning with the largest, I stamped the roses in Watermelon Wonder to match the card base.  Then I added the yellow clusters, the purple blooms and the blue dots.

The sentiment was stamped on a piece of white scrap, sponged with Watermelon Wonder ink and mounted with a dimensional.  Inside, there is a white panel with a flower stamped in the left bottom corner.  To finish it off, I also decorated the envelopes.

These were fun to make and I had all six done in record time!

Such a lovely set. I struggle with creating groupings of flowers. I love how you have added them as a diagonal strip!
