Hello and welcome...
to a very wet, cold and miserable day here!
We have a lovely bright and cute card for you this morning and for such a small card there does seem to be a lot of products used!
This little card is just short of being 5"x6".
I started with a piece of white card and die cut the outer frame of the Tag Duo Set from the Indian Ocean Collection to the bottom right of my card.  I then applied some Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed Distress Ink to my craft mat and spritzed it with water. I scrumpled a cello bag and dabbed it into the mustard seed then onto the card base.  I repeated this using the mowed lawn then applied my heat gun to dry it.  From my stash I coloured the word hello in different shades using; mowed lawn, worn lipstick, wildflower, orange and teal. The 'hello' was then glued to the white fall out piece of card.  Diamond Sparkle was carefully added around this piece followed by a small piece of acetate to cover the die cut area, and glued over the glitter jewels and 'hello.' I re-seated this on the card front.  I die cut the 'dancing tulips' in yellow card, the ornate poppy in red card and one scribble flower in white card.   I die cut this flower twice so that I could overlap the petals as well as fussy cutting a thin piece of white card as a stalk for this flower. I also die cut the poppy twice, removed the stalk from one flower, gave this cut off head some shape using my ball tool prior to adhering it to the complete flower.  A flat back black gem was glued to the centre of the flower and I added a little colour to the centre of the scribble flower using a lime green gel pen. 
I added a piece of mounting foam to the poppy head and glued this to the card, I used wet glue to adhere the two other flower heads to the card and snipped off the stalks that covered the hello area then glued the remaining bottom pieces of stalks to the card.  I created a frame in white card from the pierced rectangle dies 5 and 4.

Saturday's card has been claimed and is now on its way to its new home
