Paper Smooches SPARKS-Botanical Thanks

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! ***

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is an anything goes challenge.  I used the new Botanicals 3 stamp set for this simple floral thank you card.

Botanical Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper SmoochesI did my stamping on a pale mossy green cardstock panel.  When I stamp on colored cardstock, I usually use pigment inks to get a nice, solid look, so that's what I did here.  To switch things up a bit, I used a neon yellow ink to get the flowers extra bright.

Once I'd finished stamping the leaves and flowers, I stamped the script "thanks" from the Simply Said set between the branches.  To add a bit of dimension, I put a green enamel dot at the center of each flower.  After matting the panel on yellow cardstock, I adhered it to an easy to write on white card base.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week based on the photo. Here’s where to find them:
