Urban Blooms with Flower brads -guest designer spot

Hi everyone!  I am the guest designer for Eyelet Outlet and Brads this month and have several fun projects to share over the next few days.  Brads have come a loooong way over the years and now they have cute designs with just about anything you can think of, I mean bacon and eggs? Yes please!  Head on over to their blog to see my first guest post and check out the wide range of products their store carries.  Lots of really fun stuff!

Today I made a trio of 4x4 note cards using Spellbinders new Urban Blooms dies, scalloped squares and some ADORABLE flower brads for the centers.  How cute, right?!?
I started out die cutting and layering the 2 smallest sizes from my Urban Bloom flowers in white cardstock, then I chose patterned paper to coordinate with the flower brad.  I used a small circle die cut under the brad to make it to stand out.  I also used a couple of mini butterfly brads as accents (you can see them above the "friend" and "smile" sentiments).
Here are the Urban Blooms dies:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Here's a close up picture showing the dimension of these gorgeous flowers.
