A Gift of Love Thank You Card

Today I wanted to play withe the "Gift of Love" stamp set.  I got it but have not played with it at all.  I think it may be because I have a lot of other sets I'm playing with and also because I didn't think it was challenging enough for me.  This is a two step stamping set.  You stamp the flower outline image and then you stamp the flowers with one color and the leaves with another.  Or would that be 3 step???  I think the next time I use this set I may just color in the image to get a nicer light and dark contrast using the blender pen.  I did find it helpful to set the flower stamp on top of the stamped flowers to line it up better, but I still missed the mark!  I did a little better with the leaves.  It's a pretty image but like I said, I'm going to try my hand with coloring it in next time.

I chose this Sweet Sugarplum color card stock because there was a piece of the "Bloom & Bliss" decorative paper sitting by my cutter.  I was too lazy to put it away, so why not use it!!!  

The words are also from this set  I didn't really like how high I had to place them, but I didn't want to cut off the flower.  I should have, I think it would have looked better.  Dooley noted!

It was a fun card to make though.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
