Make My Monday: Create A Scene!

Hello, friends! We've got a fabulous challenge for you over at Make My Monday this week! The monthly theme is nature and this week we're asking you to "Create a Scene"!

Here's my card~

Some details~


I had much fun and enjoyment making this card! I went for some soft and subtle colors as I'm in a springtime mood. :) I stamped the different plant images, masked off a circle for the white "sun" and sponged a blue sky, and then dry embossed the panel. I adhered it to the card and added the sentiment, butterfly, and ribbon. Just a tip--make sure to stamp your images lightest to darkest so your lighter inks don't get dark ink on them...

I hope you'll come and try to play along--and please take a peek over at the other DT's creations--you will be happy you did! Happy stamping!!!

Submitting this card into the first ever Craft a Scene~Anything Goes challenge! :)

This is beautiful. I was wondering what you had done to get the textured background.
