Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Day

Today there is a new challenge at the MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Blog! Before I get onto today's challenge, I just want to say, we had a record number of entries for last week's challenge.  At my last check last night, we had 84 entries!!  Wow!  Thanks for your support of this challenge!

The challenge today is to use three flowers on your card.  We all love using flowers, right?  You can read more about the challenge details on the blog.  While visiting the blog, make sure to check out the beautiful cards by my fellow blog team members. I would encourage you to play along with us today and each Saturday. You just might win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers!
This week, I decided to make a flower pot card.  Splitcoaststampers has a tutorial on how to make this type of card.  I used flowers from the soon-to-be-released "Apples and Camellia" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers.  I stamped the flowers several times then layered them with pop-dots and added glitter to the centers.  The hummingbird is from the "Pears and Hollyhock" stamp set and the leaves were made with a small Sizzix die.  I cut out the flower pot then ran it through a Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing die then added a ribbon to complete the card.
