Lori's Garden card

I was on vacation last week and missed all the fun challenges.  I am happy to be back in my craft room now :), even if it is a mess!

I received a couple of new cartridges right before I left (Lori's Garden and Art Nouveau) and of course I was anxious to use them.
I really haven't used my Imagine like I should since I got it, but just love the Lori's Garden cartridge and wanted to try it out.

All the paper except for the strip of pink polka dot came from the Lori's Garden cartridge.  It's got some gorgeous florals and great birds and birdcages.  I printed and cut the flower at 2 inches.  Then I p&c the scalloped circle at 2.5 inches.  The flower and the blue strip are both popped up.  The white strip is a new Martha Stewart punch that I just got called Trellis Loop Trim and it cuts both sides out.  It came from HSN. I used some of my Shimmer white card stock from PaperTrey Ink to punch it out.  I added some Stickles to the flower, a white ribbon and a blue button. 

More white shimmer and a scallop from the base paper for the inside.

I made this card for the following challenges:

Die Cuttin' Divas -

Challenge #60: Pastels
