A silly little mini card...

This card really is mini- only 10cm across. The crazy thing is, I will probably have to put a 'large' stamp on it because of the layers, 3D foam and brads! Not including the card itself, there are 8 layers. My poor Big Shot machine! Had a right rummage around to find the little flower punch (that I knew I had but had not seen for ages!) to make the little flowers from the corner offcuts after cutting out the circles and found mini brads in the three colours. The sentiment is one of the, many, stamps I just had to have from Elzybells before they close. As you can't turn the card around to read it, this is what it says :-)
"It's been one of those days and then you get home to this card and some mad person is making you turn this card round and round to read what it says! Tomorrow will be better, promise. Have a great day!"
I am entering this for:
Cute Card Thursday's challenge of 'texting crazy'-make a feature of the sentiment.
Colour Create- Hot pink, warm orange and saffron.
CRAFT- hot and spicy colours.
Craftalicious- make your own flowers.
I faded the paper for the inside using Photoshop to give a pattern that I could still write on and stamped a tiny flower on the back of the envelope.

A gorgeous card - I love it.

I love the sentiment and your colour choices.

I also love your little flower punch because I jammed mine last week and think I may have broken it!!! Boo hoo!!!

Great creation.

Love Jules xx
