I love how this card came out! It was a lot of fun to make, But the Hydrangea took a while but Well worth it.

I added some Smooch Spritz"Vanilla Shimmer"

How to make

Step one You will need to punch one of each of the following Stampin Up! punches: 1" circle; 1 1/4" circle; 1 3/8" circle; I used lovely lilac for the base punches and bashful blue for the flowers.
step two

Layer the circles with dimensionals

step three

Then you will need to punch approx. 60 small 4 petal flowers out. This punch is part of the itty bitty shapes punch pack "item number 118309". Sponge the edge of all 60 flowers. I used lovely lilac to sponge on bashful blue.
Then Bend up the petals on each flower, making them into a "cup" shape

step four

with small glue dots, attach each small flower to the base, starting with the center
step five

When you get to the edge of the top layer, start adding the flowers at an angle to fill in the "steps"
Completely fill on all spaces with small flowers, even so they hang off the edge slightly of the bottom layer


step one
Take a piece of card stock 3" wide and score it down the center at 1 1/2".  use old olive card stock and garden green ink for shading.
step two

Hand cut a leaf shape similar to this one

Now sponge the leaf with Garden Green!
your done!
