Petals & Stems Oh My!

If you've been reading my blog, you know we're running here and there every night and weekend for softball and baseball. A couple of weekends ago it was our son's coaches anniversary; so after our 2 games that day, I came home and made an anniversary card to give to them the next day.

I used Verve Visual's stamp set Petals & Stems - I really like this set and can't wait to play with it some more! I also combined making the card with SCS's sketch challenge 180.

You can see I basically reversed my colored layers and the DP; also on the "thank you" card I used the rock and roll technique for the flower petals and the center of the flower. I like it alot - here's a close up of the rock and rolled flower.

I would have liked to have used a true square for the center panel and a bit smaller, but it wouldn't work with my image - that's okay; something to strive for next time!

Here's the individual anniversary card - thanks for popping in! Hugs, ~M.
