Garden Whimsy #4

One more card using stamps from the set "Garden Whimsy" from Stampin' Up! (Last one tomorrow!) For this card, I used the flower with stem, the sentiment, and the ladybugs in the background.

I randomly stamped the ladybugs in a lighter purple on a panel slightly smaller than the front of the card. I inked up the flower stamp with markers and stamped on a scrap. I stamped the sentiment in black over the flower. The little butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I hand-drew the bottom of the body and antennae and added a black enamel dot for the body. I matted with cardstock to match the flower and butterfly, and mounted on Pop Dots. I intentionally stamped the sentiment over to the left, but it was kind of long to off-center it and it just looked like it was supposed to be in the middle, but was mis-stamped:) That's why I added the butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

When I saw the card, I thought that you had dp that went so well with the flower. What a great idea to use that little stamp to make your own background. Very pretty card!

Oh, my gosh, the ladybugs -- wow! Love that darling background! This is so pretty! And still one more to go? Sheesh, I'd forgotten there were so many stamps in this set. A bargain! The butterfly is cute and it does fix that sentiment right up. I didn't notice it was off center at all. I do the same thing sometimes.
