Cut Flowers

I saw this card on Pinterest and wanted to try and make it.  Here's the card I found:

Julie's Stamping Spot -- Stampin' Up! Project Ideas Posted Daily: Gifts of Kindness: Cut Up Card:

So I tried to make my version of it.  First I used the new Stampin' Up stamp set "Helping Me Grow".  I stamped the flower using a grey ink.  I think colored it with my Copic Markers.  The paper size was originally 3 1/4 x 5.  So I cut it in 1/2 a 1 5/8.  Then I cut the top of the first half at 2 inches and the bottom of the second half at 2 inches.  Here's the result:

I liked the result and decided to do it again.    This time I colored the flowers using the red Copic markers.  When I went to make the cut at 1 5/8 I did it at 1/1/2 by accident.  So then I decided to make 1/2 inch vertical cuts and ended up with this.  Then I added a sentiment.  Not bad for a mistake!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day. 
I welcome any comments and helpful advice you might have.
