CTMH Thoughtful Flowers Stamp of the Month for the Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for December 2016!  If you have arrived here from Joyce's Joyful Creations blog, you are on the right track! 
Today, I would like to share a card design that I made with the December Stamp of the Month, Thoughtful Flowers.  I used the stamp set to create the background flowers by stamping with White Daisy ink onto Kraft Cardstock.  I allowed the ink to dry completely, and then traced around the flowers with our Warm Grey and Clay ShinHan markers, to create the shadowing.

I decided the card needed a punch of color, so I used my Thin Cuts with Peacock cardstock to create the sentiment.  I also decided a big flower was in order, so I cut a succulent from the CTMH Flower Market Cartridge.  I really like how my cards turned out.  They were for a swap with a group of really talented CTMH gals, so I wanted something different that would showcase a technique as well as many products.
I hope you enjoyed my stop along the hop.  Now, please travel on to Debi's blog, That Might Look Good on a Card to see what special work of art she has in store for you!
