A scrap of orange CS appeared in front of me today and whispered "stamp me!" I had just found a new kind of retro flower stamp on the sale table at my fave stamp shop and it "just felt right". I embossed it in black & then put a few streaky highlights on the flower with my white gel pen. I overlayed the crosshatch BG using white stazon (which has since become my "pink" stazon due to a little "mishap) and then added a few speckles on the background in mostly black & a little white (courtesy of the Itty Bitty Backgrounds). Didn't feel like putting a bunch of text on the front, so I just stamped 'wish' and 'joy' on the front since it felt like there should be happy words on it. Edged the bargain bin polka-dot ribbon with some black to keep it from melting into the background totally. A layer of glossy white & basic black CS completed this happy 5" x 5" card.
