Remember I said I bought this BG and couldn't figure out how to make it work with what I own? Part of the dilemma was those birds on the stamp. Well...I got rid of them...well not permanently, just omitted them for this card. I inked up the stamp in certainly celery and used a wet q-tip to wipe the ink from the birds away. (thanks Debbie Olson for that tip!) I then used the smaller flower from the SAB set Delight in Life to fill in the places the birds once were. I can see so many possibilities now for that BG.
The main flower is from the scrap kit and because I wanted to put it on dimensionals I first adhered it to a scrap of card stock and cut it out. Now it won't want to stick itself to the card when it gets mailed. I did add a rhinestone to the center. The sentiment is stamped in black and the flower colored in with markers. This card makes me happy...simple, clean, cheery!
Hubby and I are off to tackle some Christmas shopping....wish us luck!
