Nautical- Friendships Card- IAR June Challenge

Hey, Crafty Friends!! 
It's the 15th of the month and you know what that means...
It's time for another I Am Roses Challenge!! And to kick off the summer I figured it would be great to do a nautical themed card.

I Am Roses Products Used
Other Products Used 
Voyage Collection (Authentique)
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Magnetic Platform (Sizzix)
Tim Holtz Doily (Sizzix)
Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves Dies (Sizzix)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
110 lb. White Cardstock (Accent)
65 lb Light Blue Cardstock
Metal Seashell Charms
Foam Adhesive
Clear-drying Liquid Glue
Wooden Dowel

Today, I decided I wanted to make a 5" x 7" card. I started with a 5"x 7" card base made from 110lb white cardstock.

The following are measurements for the other layers...
Red Woodgrain Patterned Paper: 4 7/8" x 6 7/8"
Paddle Patterned Paper & Mat: 3 1/2" x 5", 3 5/8"x 5 1/8"
Blue Star Patterned Paper & Mat: 3 3/8" x 4 3/4", 3 1/2" x 4 7/8"

I applied each patterned paper onto its mat and attached them together using my Xyron Mega Runner.

I die cut light blue leaves using a die from the Tim Holtz's Skeleton Leaves dies set and a white doily using the Tim Holtz Doily die.

I gathered up my I Am Roses Flowers, I used...
Dark Navy Romantica Rose Medium White Daisies DaisiesSmall Red Curly Roses,
 Small Blue Curly RosesRed Edge Spring Cottage FlowersSmall Green Daisy Leaves. Then I wrapped the stems around a wooden dowel to curl the stems.

Then I started building my flower arrangement in the top left corner of my card and using a strong clear drying glue, I attached the Large Dark Navy Romantica Rose as the centerpiece. Then I worked my way outward.

Next came the Small Red Curly Roses and Red Edge Spring Cottage Flowers.

Then the Medium White Daisies Daisies.

I tucked the blue skeleton leaves and Small Green Daisy Leaves before finishing off the arrangement with a couple of Small Blue Curly Roses.

 I trimmed the doily die cut and attached it onto the card front and attached it to my card front.

Then, I trimmed down one of my cards from my Voyage Life Cards that read,
"There Are BIG ships and Small ships, but the BEST of all is FRIENDSHIPS".
Isn't this such am endearing sentiment?! I thought that it was the perfect sentiment for the front of this card.

I attached pieces of foam adhesive to the back and added it to the center of my doily.

I finished it off by attaching a couple of seashell charm to the bottom right-hand corner of my card...

And here is my finished card...

I can't say this enough... the detail in these flowers are absolutely amazing!! Just look at the texture and color in these stamens!! They are absolutely gorgeous!!

I hope you enjoyed my card for today!
