Flowers are scary

*** Happy Valentine's Day ***

Hope you're all having a good weekend.
Woohoo - no diet for me today :-)
I have Prosecco and chocolates at the ready, and I'm cooking hubby's
favourite meal tonight...   a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings. 

Here's my card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge - 
not a penguin in sight ;-)

 If you're a regular visitor here, you'll know that I am florally challenged.
So this was kind of a scary card for me.
I created a little flower display by randomly stamping my blooms and foliage.

I'm not sure what you call this technique with the word die - any ideas?
I cut the die from my stamped panel, and kept it to one side.
Then I die cut another two 'thanks' from white card and layered them all up - 
putting the original one (with the stamping on it) on top.
Then I placed it back into the space on my panel.
IRL - it has a much more 3d look than the picture shows.

Stamps & Dies - Lawn Fawn, Penelope's Blossoms / Thanks Die
Memento Inks - New Sprout / Pistachio / Angel Pink
VersaColor Inks - Boysenberry / Magenta.
