IO has so many wonderful floral images and dies it was hard to decide!
As you can see, I ended up using several!
I inked up the Cheery Daisy Bouquet first. For my next image I used the Picnic Basket. After stamping this onto my paper, I stamped the basket again onto Eclipse tape (for masking). I cut my basket out of the tape and placed it over the stamped image. I was then able to stamp on top of the basket with my Sunny Flower Jar. When the tape is taken gives the appearance that this jar of flowers is sitting behind the basket!

I ended up stamping one more flower arrangement, the Poise Picked Jar. This has been fussy cut and popped up in front. "Have a happy Day" was die cut with one of the tags from the Mini Rectangle Tags 1 Set.

"Thoughts of You" was used for the inside of my card, love this! I also added little snippets of the Geranium Bunch, Cheery Daises and Sunny Flowers.

Thanks for looking and hope the flowers brought some happy!
