Make It Monday #60- Generational Stamping

Hi All!

I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful spring weather!!! I haven't been able to be out in it too much, but I've certainly enjoyed seeing it and watching everything bloom!

We bought our house in November as a short sale... where they had stopped watering the lawns. My big priority has been to get our front yard looking as good as our neighbors and I'm happy to report that all my hard work (i.e. nagging my husband to do all the yard work) has paid off!!! We have a green lawn and living bushes in the front yard! Now the back is a different story... one that will have a sequel!

Today I have my Make It Monday card to share:

I started with a blank white piece of paper and stamped two different flowers and a few different leaves with Papertrey Ink's Rosie Posie.  With the stamp off technique (see the original PTI blog post for details)  I felt like the whole image should have some softening, so I added some background stamping on top. Also, I distressed the edges of the white paper as well as the kraft. I like the overall feel of it.

It is a completely flat, mail-able card! There is a little extra texture to the pendant with some glossy accents, but not too much.

Thanks for checkin' it out!
