The challenge this week is to make a friend card. I love the saying "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you" and based my card on that.
This is what I call a Monarch card since the size is 7" by 3 1/2". I have my computer set to print sentiments on different size papers, and so I printed the inside sentiment on a 7 x 7 piece of white cardstock. The green polka dot from PTI's Bitty Dot stack is cut 7" x 3 1/2". The white middle portion was printed on the computer and then border punched. The flowers are from Kate's ABC - all layers cut except for the center dot which is cut with a hole punch The large flower is is cut at 3" and the other two at 2 1/2". The paper is from a strip stack of Coredinations ColorCore, except the green which was a scrap. I did not make the green layer for the bottom flower since I did not need the extra stem. I like simple and this is typical of the cards I like to do.
