SSSC163 - Green Thumb

Hello and good morning friends!  It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #163.  Karen has a fun new sketch and has announced our new Sweet Sunday Sketch team members (you can see their names listed below) so please be sure to give them all a nice warm welcome.  We have a great group of talented ladies on the team and I'm looking forward to working with them.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Green Thumb to create a potted flower arrangement.  I found the best way to do this with this stamp set was to stamp the pot first then stamp my flowers and add the stems and leaves after.  This was my third attempt at stamping this image because I kept smudging ink onto each finished piece after I stamped it (gotta love those inky fingers).
Supplies: Green Thumb, Little Bitty Bird + die, Picket Fence die - PTI, Circle punches, Button, Five Petal Flower punch - SU, Scallop border punch, My Mind's Eye dp.  Colors: Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Marina Mist, So Saffron.

To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!
