Today I worked with a flower set from Kitchen Sink Stamps called Multi Step Carnations. Carnations are one of my favorite flowers and were the ones I chose to carry in a bouquet at our wedding. I had red and white ones but for this card I did a pink/red combination. I am entering this card in the Mod Squad Blog challenge for this week in which we are to use flowers for the focal image.
I stamped my carnations and sentiment with Gina K. Design inks first on white card stock and then took one of the dies from the Spellbinder Opulent Opals set and cut them out. I then placed these onto a pink oval I also cut out from the same Spellbinder set. I added them to a red card stock panel and then onto my white card base. The final step was to add pink corner elements from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I really like how the corner elements really dressed up this card and framed the carnations so well. I think they really show that they are the focal image on the card this way.

My goodness! I am so grateful to have made another card this week. The weeks before the wedding were pretty much scarce for me in card making so it feels like I am making up for lost time this week. I am having fun and having the garden slow down a bit is helping as well.
