One-Layer Stamped Floral card

Welcome and thanks for stopping by.

Today I am sharing this easy one-layer card!  It really came together quickly - about 10 minutes.  

First, I stamped the sentiment.  Then I used my ruler to draw a line on either side.  Post-it notes were used to mask off the sentiment strip, and then I just used some pretty flower stamps from Gina K to fill in most of the card.  

I did use the rock-n-roll stamping technique on the leaves and the blue flowers.

I did make a second card, too, but it refused to play along with the photographing process. I liked the colors in it, though.

Supplies: Gina K Designs Made with Love and Massive Messages stamp sets, Gina K Wild Lilac ink, Hero Arts Shadow ink Butter Bar, Orange Soda, Pool, Cornflower, Green Hills, Field Greens, Versafine Onyx Black ink, black marker, Stickles

I would love to participate in the following challenges:

What a beautiful card, Heidi, and I love the colors of your flowers! And I love the bordered sentiment! I was hoping to try that challenge this week, but I really love your card and love the sentiment that is bold enough for these beautiful flowers! Stunning card, sweet friend! Hugs!

What a wonderful pair of cards! Great idea to mask off the sentiment for a layered look without the bulk! LOVE the colors on both!
