LOC Corrugated Flower

One of my favourite sets by Layers of Color is the Sent With Love art stamp set.

There is a sentiment for so many occasions, I seem to be forever reaching for it

The background is embossed with the Tim Holtz Postcard embossing folder

and the flower is created using hand cut circles made from corrugated card stock, add a little bit of inking around the edges and a button in the centre, finishing with some leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage Die using the Grand Calibur

Tuck in a sentiment from the Sent With Love art stamp set

and it is complete - full of texture and dimension - just how I like it!!
