The Card Concept

When I saw the inspiration photo for The Card Concept challenge I knew 
instantly that I was going to use a retired stamp set from Stampin' Up 
called Betsy's Blossoms. I knew exactly what I wanted my card to 
look like so I decided not to look at any of the DT's cards before I made mine.

Here's my clean and simple design.


After I made my card I went and had a look at the DT's cards and noticed that mine
is very similar to Deanna Deans card - which I love! I thought about changing mine but
decided not to. Has that ever happened to you? You make a card only to realize it's
very similar to someone else's.

card stock: whisper white
stamp sets: Betsy's Blossoms, The Big The Bold and The Happy (Winnie & Walter)

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!

  1. Love your card Susangail! The petals on your main image with the bold Hello has wonderful impact and the other two clusters of the floating trio of blooms...they remind me of the pillow elements from the inspiration piece. Love the stitched edges too, great detail!
    Thanks so much for your very kind comment on my blog!
