Below is my card that I made for my first PALS HOP.

Stamps: Flower Fancy, Itty Bitty Bits, Love You Much, Baroque Motifs
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso, White
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
Accessories:  blender pen, brads, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, square punch, polka dot embossing folder, dimensionals

The big bloom was stamped in black, colored with a blender pen using Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard ink.  I cut out the bloom and attached it with a dimensional dot.  I stamped and punched out the little flowers to add more color.  I added the sentiment and bird, from the Love You Much set, for more details.
