 Here's my card to start you on your way!

I made some layers from cardstock, border punching out the 2 top layers. I stamped the pot on a separate piece of cardstock, colored it using Copic markers. Then I cut it out.  I stamped my flowers where I wanted them and colored them. I stamped a few extra flowers to color. I then cut them out and added them to a few of them to the main image for dimension. I shaped the pot so it was a bit rounded and the put mounting tape in the center and glue on the edges to attach it, giving the pot dimension as well. (It doesn't show up too well in the photo, sorry) Twine was used to make the hanging pot look. I put a bit of sparkle in the flower centers and stamped a sentiment. I added some doodle dots too...mainly to cover a spot where my marker dripped. hehe

I used the new stamp set
"Pots & Vases"
"Pretty Pears"
for the flowers and sentiment.

Here's the Design Team: Begin Your Hopping!!
