Bubble Wrap & Blooms Hello Card

My friend Wendy wanted a Minion card kit so I made the kit up for her and popped it in the post.  I made this hello note card to accompany the kit.  I inked the Bubble Wrap background stamp with Bundled Sage Distress Ink, dabbed Peeled Paint Distress Ink randomly over the top with a sponge dauber and stamped the image onto the front of a white A6 card base.  For the pink blooms I inked a flower stamp from the SU! Mixed Bunch set with Pretty in Pink ink and added Strawberry Slush ink around the edges with a sponge dauber.  I stamped three Strawberry Slush Petite Petals flowers and punched all the blooms out.  On the larger flowers I  snipped between the petals and added a bit of shaping.  I glued the small flowers on and added pale green iridescent gems.  I stamped the sentiment, cut it out with an oval punch, inked the edges with Peeled Paint ink and popped up the oval.  I popped up all three blooms too.  I love pink and green together, it always seems a happy combo to me!

Here's the inside and the envelope.  For the inside I stamped three flowers in Strawberry Slush ink without re-inking to get different shades of pink - I love how that looks!
