Another start to another week

It is Monday, and I am happy that I am posting this after I have finished my work day!  I have to admit that today flew by, which is really good!  Hope that your weekend was filled with lots of smiles, and relaxation.  I spent some quality time with my hubby and a friend of ours in Springfield!  We always seem to have a good time!
Today's card is focused on the different embellishments I used for flowers.  I thought it would be fun to use paper flowers, buttons and gem stones, and make them into their own different flowers.  Of course, I started with my base, which is Concord Crush cardstock from Stampin' Up!.  Then, I took some pattern paper from a paper pad I bought at Big Lots and used my punch from Martha Stewart.  I just used the corner punch for this, but there is an additional punch that allows to you punch all around the page with the same pattern.  I, then took a label die cut that I had and sponged the edges with wild honey Distress Ink to give the edges some color and pop.  I stamped onto my label die cut my flower stems from my Stampin' Up! stamp set "For Everything", and then added the gemstone, paper flower and button for the flower tops.  Last, I just added an "hello" greeting.  Hope this card inspires those to use different embellishments in different ways.  Until next time!  Be good to one another!
