Hello Beautiful! First Little Tangles Challenge

Hey everyone!  Welcome to the very first Little Tangles Challenge!

Our theme for this challenge is Say Hello, and I chose to use the Fresh Blooms set for my card. 

I pieced the small flower repeatedly to create a pattern, almost like creating your own patterned paper.

This one was very time intensive.  Each flower was stamped twice.  Once in the more solid paper and once on the lighter patterned paper.  I cut the center portions of the lighter pieces and adhered them to the larger.  Then I attached them to the base piece of paper with small Dodz adhesives in the center of the flower so that the petals still have some movement/dimension.

The centers are accented with Liquid pearls.

Your mission, which I truely hope you will accept, is to create a 'Hello/Hi' card.  You don't have to use Neat and Tangled stamps, although we do love seeing them out there, so much so that Danielle created some great digital images that you can download at the Little Tangles blog

And of course, there is a prize:  the winner will receive the Neat and Tangled stamp set of thie choosing!

And, for some additional inspiration, please be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects:
