Vibrant Vases!   I looked at this stamp set and thought I wanted to do something out of the box.  Spring is around the corner (I hope).  I am ready for flowers.  The Lovely Lattice card I shared the other day where I only stamped the flowers in the corners was part of my inspiration.

The flowers were stamped 4 times in the square pattern.  Then I determined which of the Layering Squares Framelits would be the right fit.   Adding the Basic Black scalloped square behind it offset the focal point.

At first I added the focal point on the Tin Tile embossed Balmy Blue cardbase layer.   It just didn’t look quite right so, I added the Subtles Designer Series Paper strip and I like the result.  Adding the greeting in with the white embossing on Black cardstock is the perfect finishing touch.

For this card, I used the same thought process – something out of the box.  Showcasing the flowers more than the vases.  The Rectangle Stitched shapes proved to be the starting point I needed.
