Sentiments in Bloom!

Hey Ya'll,
Well, have you ever had one of those stamp sets that has bunches of bitty stamps and you didn't really know what to do with them?  Hopefully today's project will help with that.
 For this card, I did a half size out of craft paper.  I used a green color for the bottom mat cut at 5 1/4" x 8 1/4".  The butterfly mat is cut at 5" x 8".  Everything was inked with Cocoa Ink.  I used the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge for all of the cuts in this design.  The stamps that I used for this came with the starter kit with CTMH.  You could use any stamps that you have.  I cut several round 1 inch scalloped circles.  Then I cut several different flowers from the cartridge.  The inner petals of the flowers are cut at 1.50 and the outer petals are at 2.00.  The butterflies (both layers) are cut at 1.20.  The leaves are cut at different sizes from 2.00 down to 1.20.  The vase cut is from a vase with flowers.  I used the Gypsy to contour out the flowers and stems, just leaving the vase shape.  It was cut at a height of 7.20.  
 I used 3D adhesive to pop everything at random until I was happy with the arrangement.  I used baker's twine on the vase and then added the second butterfly.
On the inside, I added a 3" x 6" sentiment mat and an extra flower from the extra cuts.

Overall, I loved the way this card turned out.  I hope you like it too!

Thanks so much for visiting today and Thank you to Pam for letting me play today!  For more goodies made with this cartridge, hop on over to Cricut Couple for a visit!  You are always welcome!  I would love to hear your comments!
