Add Leaves- The Flower Challenge

Happy still have time to play along with us at
The Flower Challenge.

This month we are adding leaves but be sure that florals are the focal point.

We also welcome our Guest Designer this month:
Our Guest Designer this month is Galina Filippenko

So here are my card details.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and laid my Rectangle Mask from A Colorful Life Designs over my paper.  I wanted a nice, clean white border when finished and these masks work so well for this technique.  I laid the Messy Dot Grid stencil also from A Colorful Life Designs, over the mask and rubbed on some DOX inks (all colours listed below).
I removed the stencil and the mask, then placed the piece into my Misti to stamp the sentiment.
I stamped the flowers off to one side and clear heat embossed them to make them pop.  
Using my ScorPal, I scored a border all around the inked area.  I love how it creates a framed look and adds a nice detail defining the space.

I simply mounted my finished piece onto a coordinating piece of green cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for taking a look.
