Joan's Challenge Peach, Green, and White

Good Morning Ladies,
I have three busy dogs working on hoofs with peanut butter in them. Miss Windy decided to get the whole crew up at 4:30 this morning.
Today I have a card I created for Joan's Challenge Peach, Green, and White
The requirements for this challenge are as follows:
Use the colors pastel peach, green, and white
Use some type of layered flower
Use a fancy corner and a heart
Use a product sold at Joan's
The link to the challenge is here :
Come join us!
Here is my card....
Let's see...where to begin... I started by creating my flowers. These flowers were created using the Marianne die LR0122 Pointsetita flower. I purchased this die at Joan's. I cut three layers for each flower out of peach card stock. I inked the edges of all the layers with Color Box pigment ink in frost white.  I then curled the edges of each layer and stacked them together. They were then popped up on the card with layers of pop dots. Tucked under each flower is a white leaf edged in Color Box pigment ink in the color of Papaya Cream. The leaves were created using Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #1 B181. I purchased this die at Joan's also. I have a habit of combining dies from different companies to create the look I want. Pearls were added to the flower centers. For my fancy corner I used the Cheery Lynn die DL151 Victorian Romance Flourish. This is one of my favorite corner dies. I purchased this die at Joan's. I received my E6000 spray glue from Joan's this past week. I used it to glue this fancy corner down. As Joan promised this glue is awesome. I sprayed it on and placed it down on the card. It stuck where it was put and no glue residue showed. This glue made putting down an intricate die easier and much faster. This is a product you must have! Next was to add a heart. I am very limited on heart dies. I don't know why. My heart was cut from Spellbinder die set Nested Hearts S4-296. It was cut from white card stock. The edge was inked with the same Papaya Cream. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations set HCPC 3404 Wedding Sentiments. A small peach pearl accents the top of the heart. To purchase any of these products go to  Be prepared she has all the new dies posted. So many beautiful and fun new ones. I have placed an order for sure!

Thanks for another great challenge Joan and Selma!

Lori, your flower die made such a beautiful blossom on your card. I must look into getting this one, and the corner flourish, as well. It is stunningly gorgeous! Beautiful balance on your card layout, too. :o)
