this looks like a lot of work...was it that hard to do? The only thing I can think of to make the flowers "pop" a little off the background would be to stamp the flower base (bold image) in turquoise on white then stamp with the black and trim it so that a slight edge of the white shows, that would give you contrast against the same colors in the background. You may already have done this and have no problems lining up the bold image with the outline but just in case, I find that stamping with Love Without End is a lot easier since I repositioned the images to be at the very bottom of the wood block so I can easily see them while stamping, also think of the flower as looking like a little gingerbread man then put the part of the flower that looks like the two feet at the bottom and the same with the outline image. Then you have 2 points of reference to line it up when stamping if you want to try to get it exactly lined up on the bold image. Course, I think it looks kinda cool when it's a little offset as well but harder to trim out and mount on something.

Wow I think this is really cool just the way it is. The only little additional touch I can think of would be to take a silver zig painty marker and outline the very inside edge of the cocoa frame. This card is very eye-catching!
