Happy 4th to all that celebrate today. It will be a hot one here with humidity. Molly and I are going to my son's for the afternoon. It will be nice seeing everyone.

I made another attempt at using the Floribunda die from Poppy Stamps for a birthday card for a sweet friend. I did not try to stack the petals this time. I made a template from cardstock cut with the die. I laid it over the black cardstock and inlaid the petals cut from SU sparkle paper. That worked much better and I didn't add anything other than the sentiment. The card base is pink and the sentiment is stamped on white cardstock and layered on pink. I'm very pleased with this card. Enjoy the day and be safe.
