She's So Special...

I made another card and it's in the mail to my niece for her birthday tomorrow. I played with one of my favorite floral sets, Watercolor Plants.  I also used a challenge from Paper Wings as inspiration which was to use every stamp in the set. So, without further ado....


I used DCWV cardstock and stamped the flowers using VersaMark ink.  I then sanded the cardstock which made the flowers pop. I added the wide sheer ribbon for a bit of embellishment.  Then I stamped the image on the white cardstock with Sage VersaMagic ink.


I stamped the image twice without reinking so you can see the flowers faintly in the background.  The text is from the Great Greetings set and stamped with Noir PH ink.  I didn't get it spaced very good but the effect is there.

BTW....  My niece will be 21.  She's an absolute cutie and is a med student at a college in Kansas.  And another little sidenote...  My fingernails match the background cardstock.  Cool green!!!  I will be changing the color soon. LOL!

I love the simplicity and the monochromatic look. Nice use of the stamp on the background.
