Perky Posies Love and Laughter Card {Lil' Inker Designs}

Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs April 2015 Release Blog Hop! (If you're just joining us, head to the Lil' Inker blog to start at the beginning!)

Remember yesterday, when I said that the Boxed-Up Birthday die was my favorite from the Lil' Inker release? Well, I just don't know because I have such serious love for these new Perky Posies flower dies, that. . . well. . . .I can't even decide which I like the most. These flowers are versatile, they cut exceptionally, layer beautifully, and they are so dang fun to play with - these will stay right in the front of my grab-this-every-day bin of supplies. I paired the flowers with a new sentiment from the (also fabulous) Awesome Blossoms stamp set. (I LOVE this font, don't you!?) 
As I created this card, I trimmed the base a little short, so that I could have some flowers and the circle hang over the edge, yet the card would still fit in a standard envelope. I added a little splatter of silver paint across the front, stamped my sentiment, and then went crazy layering these fun little flowers. I die-cut them from a few different colors and just played around until I was happy with it. Then I added some dimensional glaze to the centers for some extra shine! And since I had some leftover flowers, I decided to make a little tag that I popped into one of the new glassine envelopes, and added a flower to that too!

Remember, we'll be hopping for one more day, and there's a chance to win one of three $15 gift certificates to the Lil' Inker Shop, so comment on each blog along the way, and then stop back tomorrow for more NEW products and projects! 

Here's the blog hop order:

And after that, of course head to the Lil' Inker shop to . . .SHOP! :) Thanks so much for coming by today! Blog hop days are so much fun, and I'm glad you were here! xoxo
