July 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop - just a note

Here is my next contribution:
 I took one of the Lovely Layers medallion images and repeatedly stamped it with Fresh ink's Harvest shade.  I then die cut the smaller mat stack out to create a window.  I also die cut the Layerz and original Mat Stack 1 die to make a thin frame.  I adhered this frame to the card panel with some Tombo Mono Multi glue - this works great for thin die cuts.
 I die cut the Pretty Peonies flower and leaves and then stamped the leaves with Brilliance Coffee Bean ink.  The felt takes ink really well so this was perfect!  I layered the die cut Summer Sunrise flower over top (and had to cut it so that it was just the flower was left.
I popped the flower up from the felt leaf layer with foam dots and then some more foam dots behind the leaf layer to adhere to the card base.  I used a little dab of Tombo Mono Multi glue behind each of the leaves that touch the card panel to keep them from flapping about.  Then, the Signature Series sentiment was able to nestle right beside the flower.

I find myself returning again and again to Pretty Peonies - the flowers are so pretty and I often reach for the sentiment too.  What sets do you gravitate towards?
