I actually changed the card up a bit...mainly because I got my inky fingers on the top part of the Whisper White card stock. Ugh.
I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped two different stems from the "Wild About Flowers" stamp set in the new Basic Black Archival Ink. Yes, that's right two DIFFERENT stems. What?! I never would have thought to do that. Seriously. I just don't think out of the box like that. I can't tell you how long it took me to realize I could make cards with more than one stamp set. I know!!
Anyway, to make the multicolored flowers, I folded up a baby wipe, put some drops of Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, and Melon Mambo reinker onto it, and then used this as my "stamp pad." Cool, huh
I was going to put the sentiment at the top of the panel, but, like I said, I got ink on it, so I cut down the stamped portion and backed it with a Basic Black mat. I tied a length of Melon Mambo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon around this piece.
I embossed a Melon Mambo card base with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and adhered the stamped panel with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment onto a Whisper White scrap and cut it out with an oval from the Ovals Framelits collection. I mounted this piece onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals as well.
I feel a little rebellious for not following the instructions, but I really like how this turned out.
