If you like to make cards with flowers, "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie is a must!!! For this card I used the Tiger Lilly stamp. The flowers were stamped on glossy cardstock using black ink, then colored using small sponge daubers. When using sponge daubers, you get a quick smooth coverage. The leaves were stamped with black ink on Always Artichoke cardstock then cut out. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the rust colored leaves. Long Rectangle Nestabilities were used for the frame. The top portion is So Saffron and the scalloped piece is Really Rust. The background paper is something I have had for a long time. The frames and flowers are on dimensionals. The jewels were purhased from Michaels.
