Miss U

Hello everyone! I wanted to do a full post on this card because I wanted to show you this fun way to use Petite Florals and because the Moxie Fab Picking Up the Pieces challenge is all about paper piecing which is my new obsession. I seem to be paper piecing everything! Woo! Thanks for the awesome challenge, Cath! :)
So, I went Petite Florals crazy! First I stamped the different flowers on the card stock. Then I stamped them again on these gorgeous Jenni Bowlin Homespun mini papers and cut them out. After I cut them out I rolled their petals slightly inward for dimension and then adhered them over the stamped images on the card stock. I used different levels of dimension on each of the flowers too: adhesive, rolled up glue dot, thin foam adhesive, thick foam adhesive.
I love these Jenni Bowlin banner stickers! They are just so adorable! They come with the coordinating letters so you can spell out whatever you like!

I hope you liked seeing this fun way to use Petite Florals. They would look great for any season too, if you changed up the patterned paper. I can't wait to make some fall Florals! :)
Card stock: Bazill (sandbox dotted swiss)
Patterned paper: Jenni Bowlin (geo flower Homespun collection, Homespun mini papers)
Ink: Ranger Adirondack (espresso)
Stickers: Jenni Bowlin (Homespun banner alpha stickers)
Ribbon: Offray
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
