Cute by the Inch Surprise

I made this card last week when my sister and a friend were visiting.  We all made the same basic square card, but varied the stamps and colors as we chose. 
This card was made with a 6" piece of Pear Pizzaz from the Level 1  Hostess In Color Designer Series Paper Pack, as well as Old Olive, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, and Certainly Celery card stock.  When it's opened up, it looks like this.
The Cute by the Inch stamp (Hostess Level 1) was inked up and layered on a square of Whisper White.
The next layer was the flower made with the Petal Card Extra Large punch. Old Olive ink was used to stamp the floral design from Clearly for You.  That was popped up on a 2 1/2" circle. 
The Tangerine Tango square was cut with the Bigz Scallop Square Duo die.
The cute belly band holds everything together when folded up. It uses the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch and a 1 3/8" circle punch.

Below is a close-up of the center.
Isn't it pretty?
 Here's the closed-up version below. 
I think it's so much fun to try something different now and then.

I hope you'll stop by again soon!
