Cherish Flowers


Here's a card I made for Sherrod Studio's DT Sketch Challenge. I used the flowers from the Gracie stamp set with one of my favorite color combinations for this week's Stamp Something Challenge. I just love reds and blues! :)

The white mat is a piece of extra glossy photo paper I had lying around. Makes for a smooth, shiny border. :) I'm always stamping on white or vanilla cardstock, so I determined with this card to stamp on colored cardstock instead. I really like how the red and navy still stand out on the light blue background. The clear stamps made it a snap to line up the flowers when stamping the background and front panel. Flower centers were colored with a white gel pen and the saying stamped with white craft ink.

Have a blessed day!
