Making a card out of random stamping

Hi there friends!
I know... another post from me this week - is it some kind of holiday?
Nope, I'm just catching up around here. I was cleaning up around my drawing table yesterday afternoon and I came across this stamped piece of cardstock. I'd been having a little stamping morning (a few weeks back) with my friend June (Hi June!) and was fooling around with the Misti and this Papertrey stamp set called Brushed Blooms. I told you that I have to play with these tools, like the Misti, a while before I get a feel for them. At that point I was trying out how to stamp the layers involved with that stamp set. I kept moving and turning the cardstock as I tried out the blooms in different colors. When I was done June (clever one that she is) said you just need a sentiment for that and you have a card. And she was right. I recently got this other lovely Papertrey set called Graceful Greetings. So yesterday when I came upon that stamped cardstock I decided to take June's advice and stamp on one of those lovely Graceful Greetings sentiments. I added a little bit of colored cardstock as the base layer and I had my card. I'm thinking this would make a great "Dear Ones" card for May. It's just a cheerful mix of colors and that sentiment (actually all of them in that set!) are going to get a workout from yours truly.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a great day!

Wish my stamping experiments were as useable as this beautiful card has turned out!

This is so beautiful! Love the way these flowers look with the dimension of various inks and the sentiment!
