So much to be thankful for - Creative with Stamps MID MO #14

Monday May 15, 2017
It's mid month so time to get that FLOWER card posted to the challenge blog in case you have not added your quota for our challenge.
This is the banner that needs to be displayed on your blog also linking Creative with Stamps.

This is my card using an over all Simon Says stamp that I think I inked with an ink that was too light. I did go over it with Ranger inks and I think it helped. I then stamped the sentiment by Simon Says on a piece of scrap dp. I stamped a couple leaves from Stampin Up and die cut the leaves out. I die cut Paper Trey Ink flowers and colored with Ranger ink. I layered them and added a pearl to the center. I like the color choices and rich look. I hope you find time to play along. Check out the Design Teams inspiration from their cards if you need help..
