We Love Stamping July Challenge

Today is the first Sunday of the month so time for a new challenge over at We Love Stamping. I have 2 posts today as it is also the Card Chain Challenge reveal day. I shall be back in a few hours to share my card for June.

This month our theme is:

**Anything Stamped with the option of Fabulous Florals**

This card was made with one of my backgrounds using re inkers on glossy paper.  I stamped, heat embossed and then coloured the image. Mounted the panel onto black paper and then onto a white cardbase. The sentiment is stamped onto another background piece made in the same way.

In retrospect, I wish I had put the sentiment panel further to the right over the flower stems.

Don't forget there is always a prize to be won and this month we have two prizes from AALL and Create Petal Therapy and Vase Trio. Why don't you head over to the challenge blog to check it out? The prize winner is selected randomly and in addition the DT will choose one entry to join us as a guest designer for a future challenge.

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month, all you have to do is follow the prompt and ensure stamping is the main focus on your card. The challenge will close at noon (UK time) on Wednesday 2nd August.

I am looking forward to seeing you in the gallery.

I am also sharing this at:
Allsorts week 735 - Summertime
Four Seasons - Summer

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.

It's a delightful card Hilary, and the sentiment in my opinion is perfect just where it is. Love seeing the flower stems come out from the panel. Wonderful warm blending, it's so Summery!!
Have a lovely Sunday!

A beautiful sunshine card and lovely flowers. I think the sentiment looks fine where it is too. You don't want to cover that lovely image too much.

I love the warm, summery glow, and the flowers are definitely fabulous. I like the sentiment placement, too. I clicked for a close up so I could get a better look at the border, and I have to say that looks like a really nice die!
