My Flowery Thank You

I used the Freshly Made sketch for my inspiration today.
I had previously stamped and colored the flower so it was fun to pick it up and put it to use.  It is a stamp from Paper Source. It looks kind of fluorescent but it really isn't! Love the sentiment stamp from Wplus9 Designs.

 I inked the leaf sprig stamp with Distress Stain, gave it a spritz of water and stamped it.  I didn't reink it every time and created the background for my card with it.  That stamp is also from Paper Source.  I used a strip of vellum that I embossed with an embossing folder for the piece that goes across the card. It provided a place to add my flower and it also let the stamped background show through.  
Here is the Freshly Made sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
