Flower shop

I had another birthday card to make last week and Flower Shop stamp set had been delivered before Christmas and I had not had the chance to use it. There is a co-ordinating punch but for this card I just used the stamps.
I cut a panel of White card and stamped a sentiment on the bottom and then stamped a few of the designs randomly on the cardstock. I made a thin mat in Black cardstock and finished off with some gems.
Products used:
Stamps: Flower Shop, Blooming with Kindness {sentiment}
Inks: Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, Black
Extras: Gems
