Flower Shop, with Matching Borders

Another really fun card - lots of new, to me, techniques on this one.  This is a case from the generous France,   She is a very creative gal.
On this card, the 'base' is a single sheet, with the pink card being slightly smaller (1/4") and opening on top of the base color.  The center layers are cut 1/4" smaller, but are lined up at the bottom and hand cut, so that when you put them together with the border it is a perfect match.  Slick!  The center of the big flower is from our Homemade Candy Dots trial day - what a day!  Pony beads were melted in a toaster oven (that is now designated as a Crafting Oven because of the toxic fumes given off by the melting plastics) I used Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette card stock and ink, Gorgeous Grunge stamped in pink barely shows and makes a great addition to the card.  Finish it off by Punching the Flower Shop flower with the Pansy Punch, then punching 3 small flowers using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.    Small pearls were colored with Copics to match the cardstock and attached to the Itty Bitty flowers.  (No wonder my husband says I have too much stuff!).  Oh, by the way, I saved $5 by buying a $40 toaster oven and some beads so I could make my own 'dots'.  Enjoy
  This will be my third Club card when it's my turn to present in August.
