I used the same stamp set and layout as Loll did, but I added an embossed layer, a sentiment cut out with a Spellbinders' tag and attached with twine, and different colours and colouring method. Loll coloured her flowers with markers and the marker layering technique, but I used the two-step stamping method with the infill stamps included in the stamp set. I had to use the stamp-a-ma-jig to get them lined up with the outline stamps.
The ink for the outlines and sentiment is one of the new Memento colours called Northern Pine - it looks black in the photo but is a very dark green. I coloured the stems with two other Memento greens, but used the more vibrant ColorBox colours to stamp the flower infills as I wanted to capture the colours I see in my flower beds right now.
Congratulations, Loll, on being Featured Stamper - very well deserved. I get so much inspiration from your cards.

Susan, beautiful card! Love the colors you've used - so bright and cheerful. Power to you for using the 2-step with this set ... I can never seem to get mine lined up and finally gave up and started coloring the flowers by hand.
Love the embossed background ... really makes the panels pop. Love the twine and sentiment. Fabulous card!
