Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Thoughtful Flowers

Thank you for joining us for this month's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring "Thoughtful Flowers". It is available this monthly only for $5, with a qualifying purchase. You can find those details here or let me know if you have any questions on how to get a set of your own.
If you are coming from Michele Rowley's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants here, if you were to get lost along the way.

I kept this card simple (totally inspired by a card created by @justdandystudio) and I love the result. The polka dot background was created using the Peacock ink pad and a brand new pencil eraser. I inked up the eraser and then "stamped" it repeatedly on a piece of White Daisy cardstock. Doing so allows you to create a pattern with any color of your choice! Isn't that awesome?!
Three flowers, from the stamp set, were cut out and Enamel Blue Dots were added as their centers. "Thanks" was cut from our Thin Cuts, using a Cuttlebug, and the additional sentiment was inked in Lagoon (which matches the thin strips of colored cardstock).

I would love to know what you think about my card. Please consider leaving a comment before hopping on over to Cat Nowak's Blog. I am really excited to see what the other Bloggers have to share. I hope you are too!

Happy hoppin'!
Melissa
