Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

I'm here today with a new card for  

It's a simple card, but SO pretty and SO dimensional! It's very versatile and can be used for just about any occasion. Well, maybe not for Halloween--unless, of course, you add spiders.

Just look!

Here's a closeup.
I used a beautiful stamp and coordinating die set from Crafter's Companion (details below). I stamped the images on Crafter's Companion Ultra-smooth cardstock, and colored it with Spectrum Aquas. I just LOVE those watercolor markers!! After everything was colored, I used the matching die to cut out all the pieces (MUCH easier than cutting it all out by hand as the blossoms are separate from the leaves and stems). I glued them together and mounted them on a white vellum diecut over the background. I finished it off with a cobalt blue organza bow. It's simple...but oh-so-pretty!

Ingredients: the names of each product are links to the Crafter's Companion website.
