Life is a Beautiful Thing

Today I'm playing along with The Flower Challenge.  It's a focus on background stamping.  On a layer of white I randomly stamped my images in Basic Black Archival ink and Tangerine Tango ink,  then I added the die-cut over the top.  I've had that die-cut in the drawer for quite some time and it was just shouting at me to finally dress up a card.  It's cut from Pistachio Pudding cardstock and added a bit of color to the black and orange.  I can't remember the name of the die but it's from My Favorite Things but I think it's now retired. 

Stamp Sets:  Colorful Seasons, Farmer's Market (BasicGrey), Flower Shop, Jar of Love, Petite Petals; Inks:  Basic Black Archival, Tangerine Tango; Cardstock:  Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White Thick; Other:  Clear Wink of Stella Brush, Golden Sunset Glitter Drops (Nuvo), Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Stitched Oval Stacklets (Taylored Expressions)  Stampin' Up! product unless otherwise noted.
