Friday Card of the Day

Can you tell how much I like Michael Strong's mini flower stamp!
It is so pretty and versatile!
A great BIG THANKS to Lynette
for working with me on this card at her stampfest on Monday.
Today's card was inspired  by Laura Bassen's Paper Smooches frame card.
We stamped our card base with garden silhouettes in yellow.
Made our "frame" with Labels Eight Nestabilities and white cardstock,
running the dies through the cuttlebug twice:
the larger die first
then placing the smaller die on the cut-out to create the "frame".
We trimmed the right edge of the frame as shown.
Dimensional foam was used to adhere the frame to the card.
On white cardstock, we stamped Mike's mini flower in blue, fussy cut 
(I sponged the edges of mine) and adhered with dimensional foam
except where it touched the frame.
Stamped the sentiment with Versafine black onyx centering it in the framed area.
Stamps: Michael Strong, Stampin' Up!
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eight
Inks:Mustard seed & broken china Distress, Versafine black onyx
Thank you for visiting!!
