So girly!

My card today is super girly! :-) It's the first time I've inked up my Greenhouse Garden stamp set, and I just started playing around, not really having a set idea in mind. But I'm happy with where I ended up!

Typically, I mat images on all 4 sides, but I found a scrap of Basic Black that was large enough one way, but too short the other. Not wanting to cut a new sheet of cardstock, I just went with it. I added the scalloped border at the bottom to ground it a little more. I went through several variations of the sentiment, trying to find the perfect combo so that it wouldn't melt into the flowers and I wanted to keep the black to a minimum. Lastly, I added some glitter to the center of each flower (you probably can't tell from the picture) adding just the right amount of sparkle!


Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous, Marilyn! I've been thinking about this set... I love the scallop border at the bottom of the focal image.
