CCMC189 and Fabulous Florets

Greetings, Stampers, and Happy Monday! Today's project is a clean and simple card made with the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set and coordinating Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper. This project truly came together in 30 minutes; I timed it. Of course, that is actual creating time and does not include the time spent trying to locate the ingredients! My stamping space is pretty organized, though, which definitely helps me to be more efficient.

What do you think of this week's Color Challenge at Create With Connie and Mary? Unexpected, but very pretty, I think. The designer paper really helped to pull it all together.

The branch image from the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set was stamped directly onto the Whisper White Card Stock. The blossoms were heat embossed with Versamark Ink and Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, then cut out by hand and layered on top.
