I made this for the JustRite Stampin' Champion Contest! All you need to do is make something, anything with any JustRite product and enter it in the gallery!
I stamped the lilly (Summer Blossoms - Flourishes) all over half of the base mat on my card using Rust Adirondack ink, then stamped my flower two times with the rust ink and one time with Momento Bamboo Leaves for the small stem piece at the base of the flower. I colored and cut out different sections of the flower so that I could layer it and make it 3-dimensional. The saying around my floral element was created using one of the Classic Round Wood Stampers and the Small Letter Set for the Round Monogram Stamper by JustRite. I spelled out "Bloom Where You Are Planted" and made sure to leave some room for my stem to come up through the middle! The rest is just matting, adding ribbon and some self adhesive gold brads!
This card also was made with Sharon Johnson's weekly Stamp Simply challenge in mind! The challenge this week is backward/forward - use the same image that is the focal point of your card as a background!!

Love your color combo here. This is beautiful and the ribbon absolutely sets it all off perfectly.

I am going to have to see a tutorial on the JustRight (toy)..I am always trying to do this look on the computer.. never quite works out.
Your card is just lovely!
