See the Flowers Smiling

Well the weekend is over for me, just going to hit the button to publish this post and then hit that pillow, LOL.
We spent the day with our oldest son and his family. Our youngest grandson was dedicated at Church this morning, so we skipped our own church service and went to theirs. It was a very long service, two hours!!!
Their were two children being dedicated and that was only a small part of the service. We go to a very traditional style service with mainly hymns and some chorusy style music, but this service was modern with piano, drums and guitar and 3 people leading the singing on the platform. Lots of singing all of which I didn't know until the very last one. We went back to their home and had lunch with them and left just after 3 p.m.
I had been invited out to a Jazz performance by my friend and her husband. The band leader is his cousin and I've been to several of his performances. It is at a local venue and we had a meal there as well. It started at 5.30 p.m. so I was home before 9 p.m. Just enough time to relax and then play around with what I was going to make tonight and also to schedule a post for Monday.
Here is my card for today.

front of card
 inside of card

Here is what I used:
SU Rose Red for basecard
SU Blue card (still using the one without the packaging, LOL)
SU Rose Red panel embossed with Cuttlebug folder Roses
Nestie Labels Eighteen - one in blue and one in white
Nestie Floral Heart die
Nestie Oval die
Sentiment is from Hero Arts clear stamp set ~ Anytime Messages
Ink Purely Pomegranite and Cherry Cobbler
I drew around an oval to get the blue one as none of the ovals was quite the right size or shape.
The floral image is "Small Pansy" by Penny Black
I stamped it twice and then cut only a part of one of the images and 3D it. I coloured with SU Cherry Cobbler Ink and a blender pen ~ added a tiny bit of glitter using a Jelly Roll Pen.
I added a tiny pink pearl to the centre of the flower.
I paper pierced the blue diecut
The inside has a piece of the blue card, the white Nestie label and a sentiment from SU clear set ~ "Curly Cute"
