Flowerpot dsp card

Today I am talking at the local Friendship group about cardmaking. After sharing what is involved to make a card I thought the ladies could make a card, this one.I have cased this from Susan Lankford seen here. I have used different sentiments and have less flowers on mine. But I liked the way it looked with the designer paper and then only requiring a little stamping to complete it.
This designer paper, Flowerpot, is quite busy but with small amounts used on the card it actually makes a good focal point.
