A Thoughtful Card

Recently a friend had surgery and I decided to use the Botanical Gardens Bundle to create a card sending her thoughts as she recovered.  One of my favorite color combinations is Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride so I decided to use the two colors to create a floral bouquet on the card. The touch of black and the rhinestone centers for the stamens provided an extra "pop".  The leaves were cut and stamped using Old Olive card stock and ink.  To create definition, the the flowers cut edges were sponged with the matching ink color of the flower.  The sentiment is found in the hostess set, "Best Thoughts" and was perfect for the card.
