Blue Magnolias & You

Quite a while ago I purchased a gorgeous stamp set from Altenew called Build A Flower: Magnolia.  I really wanted to use this stamp set in one of my classes yet I had to make the card kinda easy as that's the way they like it.

Can you believe this is the last day of March!!!! Where did it go?? Days seem to melt into each other with this staying at home stuff.

So, I went to Altenew's website and the stamp set and, oh my gosh, for the gorgeous cards!!!  I chose one that I thought my gals would like and kinda changed it a bit for them.

There are 5 flowers on this card, though it's hard to tell.  There are 3 on the bottom.  Some of my gals will probably move the 1 bloom.  I kinda think it would have been better in another spot. Also, I will change the back embossing as my wood embossing folder wants to cut my paper! Don't like this at all!

I stamped the white circle before embossing it.  Not sure if I like that or not.  I used Momento inks for stamping the flowers and the You.  I used Fun Stampers Journey's Whip Cream ink to stamp on the black.

With the close up of the sentiment I can see that the white ink kinda smudged but otherwise it's hard to see it.  I double stamped the sentiment otherwise it was a little bit faint.
