Flower Market Forget Me Nots

Hello friends,
Today I want to show you a beautiful card I created with the Flower Market Cartridge.

There's around 50 different types of flower and succulents on this cartridge along with many many other shapes.  We're not talking about 7 petaled flowers vs 3 petaled abstract flowers, but ones that you can actually identify.

Today, I'm using the Forget-Me-Nots.  I've also cut the banner and envelope from the Flower Market Cartridge. 

The light blue flowers and the Envelope liner were cut from our Whimsy Fundamentals.  I also used Pixie, Sweet Leaf and Crystal Blue cardstock (all part of the Whimsy color family) to complete this card.  I love sticking within a color family because I know that the colors are going to work together.  

I added a LOT of shimmer to a couple of the flowers using our new shimmer pen.  You can put on as little or lot as you want.  It's like eye shadow--a little goes a long way and an inexperienced user (that's me) put it on a little heavy.  

I love the dimension of this card even without embellishments.  
The sentiment is one of the stamps included in the Flower Market Bundle.  
This bundle has 2 sets of background stamps which are designed to add texture and a whole sheet of sentiments.  I LOVE sentiments, especially when my Cricut is doing all the hard work of creating beautiful die-cuts to put on my cards.  These stamps are perfect!  I'll be using them a lot.
