I didn't realise that the flowers on Concord and 9th You are Here stamp set  actually made a heart shape. I brought it because I thought the flowers were ideal for 3d layering.

I first layered up my flowers, I had to cut and layer the leaves first then flower by flower with so many parts it's easy to muddle them up. Then I had to decide how to make an actual card, I was inspired by the Splitcoast Stampers  sketch SC679 but used the leaves from the Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves.

I placed the leaves under the top and below the panels but in hindsight it would have been easier to use a bit of acetate. I used foam tape to lift the panels from the main card to help see the leaves.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners with their Birthday messages.



Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

This is a really beautiful card Debby and love the way you have coloured and layered the pink flowers and leaves, and the pretty leaves tucked under and around the panels look so pretty, and the flowers stand out against all the white surrounding space. x

I wish I had half the patience you have when making your cards.....this looks like it was so much work putting the leaves of the flowers back in the right spots then raising up the white leaves also. It turned out gorgeous and well worth the time!

Beautiful Debby, love the design of this card. I don’t think I would have spotted that the flowers were a heart if you hadn’t pointed it out
