I used my MISTI for a good portion of the design on this card. I only used small stamps on acrylic blocks to add accents to the blossoms such as the dots and the veins in the leaves and other small elements. This card is suitable for Mother's Day or for any special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or graduation when you use a sentiment like this one.

I also added some of the design inside the card in the lower left corner. The stamp set used for the flowers is called Flourish Stamp set and it is from Concord & 9th. I like that the flowers are somewhat interchangeable as to where you add them to the stems and leaf flourish. The sentiment is from a Gina K. Designs set called Birds & Blossoms. And all the inks used are from Gina K. Designs.

I used the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders for the stamped and black layers. And, the sentiment was stamped in black on white card stock and fussy cut to fit inside the Pierced Banner Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Once the card was all assembled I added three black pearls to the upper right corner.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Blog Challenge
Double D's Blog Challenge
Dies R Us Blog Challenge
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge

Well, I sure enjoyed doing this card. I love all the colors and how it is such a bright and cheery design. I hope  you liked it too.

Well, it is time to quit for the day and concentrate on the evening meal. I thank you for stopping by and for all the comments.

God bless,

May Rudolph Days Challenge

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
