Summer Bouquet

Hi all and welcome.  Today's card uses the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, where our hostess is Jennifer Timko.

As part of my recent retail therapy, I bought some stamp sets from The Greetery and used one of them on today's card.

I stamped the images in grays and then again in green/lavender colors.  After die-cutting, I arranged them and held the arrangement together with Press n Seal while I worked on the rest of the card.  Onto a panel of Grout Gray cardstock I dry-embossed the Weathered embossing folder before adhering it to a white top-folding card base.

I then added my floral arrangement, tucking in the white-embossed sentiment.

Thanks for visiting.  The DT have some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.
