I was inspired by a sentiment from the Green Thumb stamp set: Time to Bloom!  I had a cute little wooden planter that I decided to transform into a flower box. 

I made a matching card using a Sweet Sunday Sketch (68).  I wanted to tie in as many patterns as possible for maxuimum "matchy matchiness" with the flower box.

Inside the card:

The three blooms:

I used green felt and the Jumbo Ric Rac die as the stem/leaves for my blooms. 

I took pictures along the way and will post a full photo tutorial on how to re-create the blooms. :)  Check back tomorrow for that!

Ready to hop along?  I know there has been a LOT of excitement on this hop.   Tons of awesome projects AND the fun announcements about the NEW design team members.  If you've been counting... only 2 of the 3 have been announced so far.  There is ONE MORE left and I have the pleasure of introducing her!  YAY!   She is the next (and LAST) stop on the hop.  Some words I would use to describe her: sweet, kind, thoughful, talented, devoted... FRIEND
