Less is More 173...Die Cut...Pink Flower

This week's challenge at Less is More is a recipe: Die Cut...to include a die cut on your card:)!
  I have a bunch of die cuts on my card...
I got my inspiration from the Simon Says Stamp store site.  I was making a link for another post and went to this set of dies to create my link and was inspired by one of the sample cards.  I have no idea who made it, otherwise I would give credit for it...loved the scattered flowers with the single colored flower!!  My card is actually  2 layers...here's how I made it...
I used the new Simon Says Stamp Partial Die Cut Flowers dies...they do exactly as their name says...the dies partially cut the flowers on the card stock.  I die cut the main flower on the panel.

 I then put a wide piece of Eclipse tape over the middle of the flower.  I used scissors and cut that strip off the panel, using the tape for my guide. 
 Then I used all the flower dies from the rest of the set of dies and filled each of the two cut panels full of partial die cut flowers.  

I colored the main flower pink and added a smaller flower on top of the large one, adding an enamel dot.  The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp, Birthday Messages.  I popped up all three panels onto the card...giving it a multi-layered look...
What fun!!  Hope you all had a wonderful Monday!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
