One Layer Sentiment.....

Hello everyone: Today is "One Layer Cards" challenge over at the "Less is More" challenge blog with the focus on the SENTIMENT. I just got this beautiful sentiment from Elizabeth Craft (among other little things, all on sale) just in time for Spring so I decided to enter this challenge because this sentiment is really so beautiful and so true. Here is my card.


This sentiment is stamped on a Whisper White card base with SU Costal Cabana ink, the sprigs of flowers are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


Both the sentiment and the flower are from the same retired set from SU called "Faith in Nature" and they are stamped with Hello Honey ink.
Here are the pictures of the stamp sets I used to make this card.



Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your comments so very much, until next time, happy stamping. Hugs from Maria.

Oh boy if I had that Flourishes Set I would be coloring the heck out of it as did you with these beautiful floral corners! Wow! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! For a minute I thought you may have purchased a new Avery Elle set, there's a similar stamp like this and Marcy herself just made a Power Poppy stamp with that larger daffodil collection. Good thing you hang onto stamps they're good for life!

Thanks for stopping by Patti, this Flourishes stamps by Marcella are a treasure to have, I'm so glad she is using some of this images for her Power Poppy sets, that way people who missed buying them from Flourishes, can now get them from Power Poppy.
