For today's card, I decided to try and make my own hand stamped pattern paper. Using the newest stamp sets from Wplus9, Woodgrain Silhouette & Woodgrain Silhouette Additions... Using a color combo of: Spring Rain, Ripe Avocado, Melon Berry and Enchanted Evening, I was able to create a patterned paper with a botanical feel to it. Since the pattern was so busy, I wanted to keep the sentiment simple. So, I simply stamped it onto a white cardstock strip and embellished it with a Melon Berry button and leaves, hand cut from the leafy ferns, to create the look of a flower bud.
Finished the card off by rounding the top corners and embellished with a couple more buttons to emphasize the butterflies (which also conveniently helped create a visual triangle between the three buttons, love it when things just happen to work out like that).
I've got quite a bit to accomplish, so that's it from me today. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a good one!
