Vase of Flowers

Today I went to a $1 store near me ... my friend Heather mentioned that they are now carrying some great scrapbooking / card making supplies.  I ended up buying six sets of clear stamps that are really cute (only $3.00 ea!!).  What a deal!!  Here's my first card using one of my new stamps and it's for today's SCS Challenge - Technique Lover's Challenge - Stamp the Sentiment over the Image.  Hope you like.

"Vase of Flowers"
Stamps:  Marina Drive (Heidi Grace stamps); Cottage Garden sentiment (SU!) Paper:  Early Espresso, Early Espresso Designer Series, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Early Espresso; Stampin' Write markers: Soft Suede, Old Olive, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette (SU!)  Accessories & Tools:  1/4" Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, glue dot, adhesives & dimensionals

I inked the flower stamp with Stampin' Write markers: Rose Red and Old Olive.  I stamped the image onto the Whisper White cardstock and then colored in the flowers using the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write marker.  The vase was inked with Soft Suede.

I inked the sentiment with Early Espresso and stamped it over top of the vase.  I mounted the main image onto a frame of Early Espresso cardstock.  I added an Early Espresso knotted ribbon, and secured the knot to the cardstock with a glue dot.

I mounted the striped background paper onto the card base and then added the main image panel, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.
