I had fun creating this handmade card, realizing the best way to create the "bunch" of flowers - but hide the mess - is to 3-D a floral image. That's what I did here! I just started stamping leaves, branches and flowers, creating some type of arrangement, and this is how it turned out! I'm definitely not a florist and never have been in a previous life! LOL

I'm pleased with how this card turned out and used the two patterned papers from our Cats & Bats, Halloween pack. Who would have guessed, huh?! They are two of my favorite patterns from the Holiday Expressions. They added some fun to this card and I hope you like it.

Ink colors used: Blossom, Eggplant, Emerald, Lemon, Pansy, Raspberry, Sweet Leaf
