The Challenge #61

I'm popping in before church to share the card that I made this morning
for a friend of mine.
I was inspired by this photo from The Challenge #61:

Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired by the woodgrain texture, the colours and the flowers.
I decided to use my new Wplus9 Happy Wishes stamp set.

I blended some ink onto my Simon Says Stamp woodgrain cardstock.
I stamped the Happy Wishes flowers and leaves onto white and soft stone diecuts,
where I heat embossed the white flowers onto the soft stone diecuts.

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Belated Birthday)
onto a PTI Keep It Simple Frame diecut.

Thanks for looking!
