Kumquat Kard

So I combined two challenges in making this card. I just found out that another one of my friends is pregnant and this is a Congrats card that I'll be sending to her. They're not finding out the gender of the baby and she really likes bold colors, so I just had fun with this card and kind of customized it to her style preferences! Most of the items used were from my stash.
The Challenge No. 8 from Use It was to include flowers, metal, fabric, and a new technique or one you haven't used in a while: the flowers are a given- the metal brads and safety pin- the fabric ribbon- and I haven't really ever used 3-D elements with stamps, like here I added the raised flowers onto the base stamp. The sketch is from Our Daily Bread's May challenge (ODBD, ODBDSC03).

Brads: MakingMemories, Ribbon: Sheer Creations, Stickers: Current, Glitter Glue: Crayola, Inks: Staedtler, Martha Stewart, Stamp: Inkadinkado

Steps to Create:
Cut paper to desired card size. Add other paper layers and stamp image. Add flower stickers directly onto stamp and with foam squares on the sides of the stamp. Add ribbon, brads, sentiment, paper clip, and glitter glue.
