I immediately thought of the Wplus9 Mother's Day Bouquet set. I've been wanting to play with those gorgeous flowers since I got it! I stamped the flowers and leaves using the citrus-colored VersaMagic inks that I've been so in love with lately. I cut each bloom and leaf and put them together to make a a flower cluster. This set is so pretty, and a great deal at just $6.00.
For the vertical element, I first masked and sponged an inked panel but I wasn't too excited about it. Then I remembered this beautiful card from Maile Belles, and decided to place the sponged panel behind a cut out section of white card to give it a little dimension. It still needed a little something to set it apart from the flowers, so I stamped my large plaid HA background stamp across the sponged panel. Finally, I popped the flower cluster up on dimensionals and added a sentiment.
I wondered if it need a little something up in the right hand corner to balance it out. I've never been very good at random bling, but I gave it a try. I can't decide which I like best. What do you think - bling or no bling?
