Flower Challenge #9 - Anything Goes - Reminder

Welcome back to our mid point reminder for this month's Flower Challenge. It's Anything Goes and I've really enjoyed seeing all your makes:

Here's my take on the theme with a simple almost one layer card. These are an older set from Clearly Besotted (discontinued sadly) that my lovely crafty friend Laurie sent me as she no longer wanted them. I don't have a lot of layering stamps, but I can see why people like them. They are really very simple to use, working best with a stamp positioner, and make a quick card.

I started with a stitched detail card panel which I found in my scrap box. Using my stamp positioner and some of my Altenew inks - they are designed for layering, so thought they would be perfect for this card - I positioned and inked the different parts of the rose.

  I stamped the sentiment on the card, covering a little of the rose, but I felt that wasn't too much to worry about. I then popped it up onto a dark grey A2 card base using fun foam.

Here is a list of the supplies used on this card. I have signed up to affiliate links on some products.

Love this beautiful single rose image, perfect for a lovely CAS design card, the simple stitched panel is the perfect frame for it.
