Today I am sharing a card I created with the brand new Sweet Pea Flowers! I love how they drop down in a big beautiful burst of petals. In the morning, their tiny cups fill with dew and drip down for all the woodland creatures to enjoy!

I knew I wanted to use foam pop dots in order to add more dimension to the card, but I had to figure out a way to be able to piece the tiny petals of the flowers in place without falling out. So I cut a fan-shaped piece of card stock stock out and glued it to the back of the flower heads.


Once the petals were all glued in place, I added the foam pop dots and then glued the flower to my card base.


Then I added Mushrooms and Toadstools, and a few forest friends from Bellina Corner, Serene Rabbit and Bunny Hop. There's another little surprise too, a Magnificent Mini Faerie! She's part of our new May release too.


How would you like to add the Sweet Pea Flowers to your collection? Just leave a comment on this post for an opportunity to win!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

What a SWEET SCENE you've created! I ADORE the little fairy! ;) And the sweet pea flowers take me back to gardening when I was a little girl.... ;) My first experience in gardening! ;)

Hi Michelle, a stunning card love the bright colours you used against the darker background, Sweet peas always seem to be very brightly coloured and used to grow up our arbour in the garden, welcoming us home with their beautiful scent. Thank you for the inspiration, have a wonderful week... Megan

AWESOME!! Simply AWESOME!! You captured the magic perfectly!!

To me, this is the perfect card made with dies. It has so much to look at and see. I love the gorgeous flower, the sweet little bunnies, the butterfly and the mushrooms. The little fairy dancing on the mushroom just adds the perfect touch to show a wonderful springtime scene.
