More Gathered Garden

Y'all, this card took two tries to get right. The first time, I used a scrap that was just too small...and my bouquet ended up off the edge of one side and a quarter inch in on the other. It's so sad when everything about a stamped piece is perfect except placement.Ugh.

Plus, it's a rookie mistake. It's ALWAYS better to stamp on a too-large scrap and trim it down to fit, which is what I did the second time around.


This card is going to my MIL who had surgery last week. She'll love the color combination...and it's so cheery, don't you think?

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,

stamps: Papertrey Gathered Garden, Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental
ink: Various dye inks
paper: Papertrey
accessories: craft foam, glue
