    Floral Background Stamping

    hey everyone! Can you believe it’s 2017 already? Today I’m sharing a card for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – anything goes. I created the floral panel using MFT pretty posies stamps and hero arts shadow inks.  The sentiment die is by SSS and covered with glossy accents.  I just love the pop of colour from the pink SSS cardstock!  A little (or a lot) of clear wink of Stella finishes it off. Hope you like today’s card.

For this card I first of all used the peek-a-boo circle and embossed it three times on my white…
