Good Morning are you ready for a new THROWDOWN today?? Our new challenge is 3D and our sponsor is FLOURISHES. They have many products for your stamping needs and some lovely stamp sets you can find HERE. The one I'm using today is the Nasturtiam Set .Don't you just love nasturtiams with their cheery little flowers and the way the cool round leaves lift themselves up to the sun. To do something different I made a spring card. Made several punched edges and then stitched them for the base. I stamped, water colored and cut out several of one of the flowers and then layered it and foam dotted on the base with a leaf. On the other side I cut out a couple layers with a nestie and added the sentiment.

My dear friend Cindy is moving next week so this is for her. Happy for her but will sure miss her.

For the center I used a corner punch to make a couple layers to matt the image onto.The orange layer was run thru the embossing folder. The image is water colored and a few of the flowers cut out and pop dotted up for some added dimension. The butterfly is one of the HEART SONG DIGIS
Supplies: Bazzill and Stampin Up papers, Dotted Swiss embossing folders, MS zig zag and corner loop punches and Spellbinder label #14.
