Johnny Jump Up Flowers

Or at least my interpretation anyway,  they are a miniature pansy and make a great ground cover.  In this area they will soon be popping up everywhere!

        001

The flowers are from the Simple Friendship stamp set, while the stem is from the For All You Do stamp set.  Flowers were stamped with Elegant Eggplant Ink and centers were sponged with Barely Banana Ink.  After stamping each flower, I snipped out each petal, cupped them with my stylus, added a brad and mounted them with glue dots.  Check those corners out….punched and embossed!  Cool!

Looking at little closer ~

Last but not least, the inside ~

Most of the time after seeing the cards posted I usually think of a dozen things I would have done differently.  But this time I feel the need to pass along to you…..use Elegant Eggplant Ribbon, however this ribbon does match the Soft Subtle Brads very well.  I thought I had enough of the Eggplant but I was a couple inches too short and had to substitute.  But oh what a difference it would have made!

Until next time . . . HAPPY STAMPING!

And thanks for visiting!!

Your card is very pretty. I love the colors. The color tone of the ribbon matches so I would not sweat it at all.
