Stampin' Up Sending Smiles Hello Card for The Paper Players Challenge

Stampin' Up Sending Smiles Hello Card by Tarabeth Stamps
Hello!  Happy Mother's Day to all those amazing mom's out there.  Today over at The Paper Players Challenge we have a color challenge.  I can not wait to see what all you create this week!
I started with a piece of Stampin' Up Zoo Crew DSP adhered to a Stampin' Up Silver Foil mat.

I die cut a piece of Basic White with Stampin' Up Stylish Shapes Dies.  I stamped the stem/leave from Stampin' Up Sending Smiles Stamp Set using Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped 2 flowers from the same set using Melon Mambo and Bubble Bath ink.  I die cut each image with Stampin' Up Sending Dies.

I adhered the circle die cut to the card front with liquid adhesive.  I added the flowers to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I die cut a piece of Melon Mambo and Basic Black with Stampin' Up Sending Dies to create the layered sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment with Mementos Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Basic White before I cut the sentiment.

I finished the card front off with Stampin' Up Tinsel Gem Four Pack.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat.
