Layered Flowers - Diagonal

I don't use many diagonal layouts, but this one works well with my large flowers.  Lining up the sentiment is important for the card to look nice.  Some of the color contrast was lost in my picture, but in real life, it's a bright and happy card.
Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) limeade ice (light green card base), simply chartreuse (medium green layer and flower centers), and patterned papers from the orange zest, summer sunrise (yellow), and raspberry fizz (pink) pattern packs
  • The layer under the flowers is embossed with Sizzix Textured Impressions chevrons.
  • Dies are PTI Beautiful Blooms II #3 (large and medium flowers).  
  • The flower centers are punched with a 5/16" circle punch.  My usual 1/4" hole punch didn't look quite large enough for this flower.
  • The sentiment "Sending you smiles ... across the miles" is computer-printed in green ink with Harrington font, bold, expanded spacing.
Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (240)
