My happy place

Woohoo, I got to play with flower stamps tonight!! This card is nothing like I thought it would be when I started stamping (hours ago, ack, where has the time gone??!) but that's ok, I like the final result. I ended up using a layout inspired by last week's SCS sketch challenge. I chose to use the "happy place" sentiment because, as you can see from the past couple of posts, among the flowers is indeed my "happy place"!! Both the flower and sentiment come from retired mini catalog sets - More Petal Prints and Cute Converse. I also used French Script on the turquoise strips, and the main card actually has the Canvas background stamped with versamark, but you can't see it in this darn photo (I had some trouble getting a decent photo tonight too!). The cardstock colors are Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. I used markers on the stamp to color the flowers, stamping off as well for added background dimension - Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise and Garden Green. Other embellishments include the ticket corner punch, some brads from Making Memories, grosgrain ribbon, and a little Star Dust Stickles on the main three flowers for a bit of shimmer. That pretty much sums it up - I better get this posted and hit the hay, I'm soooo sleepy!
