Die Cut Flowered Hello

I love Memory Box dies!  I got one out after church, this morning, and decided to experiment with a thought I had last night ...funny how thoughts change as you create:)...
I used this die from Memory Box:
  I die cut the flower in black a total of 12 times(layered 4 on each flower for depth...mine was cheap paper, if you use good cardstock, you could probably get away with 2 or 3 layers) and cut one more flower in each of the colors from Papertrey Ink polka dotted paper(the middles are all you use from the colored flowers).  What's cool is that with the pink and the the whole petals on the other 2 flowers, they just kind of "snap" into place between the layers of black.  The only adhesive needed for the petals was just for the cut petals, and I used rolled up sticky dots for those.  Yes, it was a lot of gluing...I used a glue stick to paste all the black flowers together...but I like it!  The brads are Chunky brads from Doodlebug, the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames #1.  I originally thought I would do yellow daisies with the black, but saw this paper, and thought the colors looked like so much more fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

What a great flower! You are twisting my arm badly!!! Love the polkadots and well done on the depth you added by multiple layers, the border really shows up nicely. Great card :)

Hi Lisa. I can't find an email contact on your site and I'd like to confirm with you that you haven't received a Liebster Award. I've searched your site for that as well, and don't see that you have received one (which is shocking), and if you haven't, I'd like to nominate you. I'd like to make sure before I post my blog, so please email me at darnell.knauss@gmail.com to let me know. Thank you!
