I'm Back!

It seems like I have fallen off of the blogging bandwagon! I can only blame end-of-school-year activities. Between award ceremonies, final track meets, dance recitals, band concerts and finals, there just hasn't been enough time to sit down and blog. Not blogging, however, does not mean there has been a lack of creating. I have been scrapping and stamping like crazy! In addition to several layouts, I have been making cards like a Hallmark production line. There have just been so many occasions this month and my card-making frenzy is not over yet.

So anyway, today I have a card to share with you. Here's the color inspiration for my card:

And here's my card:

It uses Hero Arts' Big and Small Flowers set that I picked up during my Fresh Face Winner shopping spree. You'll be seeing a lot of this stamp set. Since it was out on my table, i just kept stamping!
To create this card, I first stamped the brown flowers onto a large rectangular block. Next, I cut the yellow card stock into three even panels and matted each on brown. After stamping the sentiment onto the oval piece, I felt that it looked flat so I went back and stamped some small flowers using Versa Mark ink. Here's a close-up:

I finished off the inside of the card with a little extra strip from the original yellow rectangle and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
