Botanical Bliss...Heartfelt Wednesday...

 Hey stamping friends!  It's another fabulous Wednesday and boy, did I have a blast at CKC in Valley Forge.  I had so much fun working the booth and doing the Make N Take.  It felt like over the three days I saw about 1000 beautiful and unique flowers made.  Perhaps you were one of the lucky ones to get all inky and "SPARKLY!" 

Anyway, I'm back and ready to share another creation I made using one of my most favorite sets EVER:  Botanical Gardens...I LOVE the earthy images and how they can be combined with most other stamps in my collection.  As you might also notice, they work well with hand scribed sentiments.  I decided to use just a tiny bit of patterned paper and even cut out a little butterfly found on that paper too.  I trimmed the card with some yummy ribbon, as usual. 
So LOVE how earthy and serene the card looks...Simple and perfect...My sentiment says:  "Nature reflects the gifts of the Creator".  I'm always in awe of all that He has created in nature, so beautiful and perfect!
