Flowers Theme Challenge starting 6 July 2020 for APTS blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I'm very thankful to live in the USA! My parents and grandparents put a strong love bond into me for this country. Our 200+ years have had its ups and downs but overall it has been a wonderful country for me to live in for the past 57 years. I am looking forward to what's ahead.

I was born on Flag Day and even represented Betsy Ross for my 8th grade class during our school's Bicentennial celebrations back in '76. (Yea!!!)

This card is for my high school co-valedictorian niece! Instead of doing school colors, I thought I'd go with a spring floral theme and soft muted pastel colors. She always makes me think of pretty pastel flowers when I hear her name mentioned. {APTS blog= flowers theme for July; floral papers, floral stamping, floral die-cuts, etc.}

Products for card were part of my kit I collated out my stash to copy cat the June 2020 selected inspiration kit at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog:

Above: the pale green washi tape, light pink gems, clear gems, and butterflies
Below: the card base w/ background floral paper is waiting to be used; the recycled packaging from My Mind's Eye got shuffled under and isn't seen in this photo

Below: this photo shows the corner of the card base and the left side of the packaging which was partially used on a pretty layout; the 'border' strip for the top area of this card is covered up
