Flower Pot Pull Out Card

This is my first attempt at one of those Flower Pot cards (template can be found on Splitcoaststampers.com)  The top layer of flowers are attached to the sentiment card that pulls out.  They are quite addictive so I'm sure I'll be making more.  All stamps and supplies by Stampin' Up!  Stamps:  (111626) Eastern Blooms and (113800) Matchbox Messages.

Asian Inspired Stampin' Up! Cards

Along with my other ventures, I'm also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I created these cards yesterday as samples for my upcoming workshops in June.  I've had both these sets for awhile and this is my first time playing with them:  (114958) "Embrace Life" and (114395) "Dream Gardens".  I think our new embossing folder is perfect for the Asian theme as well: (119976) Square Lattice.
