Lollipop Flower Pot

Sorry for not posting anything new in over a week. I ended up with another ear infection and fluid in my ears again on Monday so I did not get anything new made all week. I have had trouble with my left ear before but I have never had anything like this. I have an appointment with an ENT in June. I am just hoping I can hold out until then. Unfortunately with the insurance we have now it can take months to get into a specialist. If anyone reading this has any suggestions for how to get fluid out of my ears in the meantime let me know.
Now on to the details of the card.
I am part of the Sheteam which is a group of homeschool moms that sell their work on Etsy. Each month they have a challege and this months theme was flowers. I have had this idea for awhile now and thought it would be the perfect chance to give it a try. I started by drawing a flower pot on Kraft Cardstock then I cut it out. The next thing I did was to sew it onto the striped paper which is from the Memory Box Sugar Collection. When I was done with that I sewed some straight lines to create the pockets for the flowers. I created the flower pops by cutting out the flower shapes with my Cuttlebug flower die then I stamped the flowers and middles with images from the PTI Beautiful Blooms and Women of Life sets using Hibiscus and Berry Sorbet ink. After that I attached the flowers to lollipop sticks with glue dots and tied some thin hot pink ribbon around them. I finished the pops off by adding some Jelly Lifesavers that I had wrapped in plastic wrap and sealed with a glue dot then I attached them to the middle of the flowers and placed the lollipops into the pockets of the flower pot. For the sentiment I stamped the Celebrate image from the Women of Life set on some Vintage cream cardstock and added it to the bottom of the pot. Finally I added the flower pot layer using dimensionals onto some Hibisus and Spring Moss cardstock that I had sewed together with a zig zag stitch. The recipient can take the candy off the flowers and eat it or leave it for decoration.
The final card size is 5.25x5.25. This card is now available in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying it. That's it for now. I have more things to share this week so be sure to check back. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great night.
