On a roll tonight!

I'm on a roll tonight! I have a dozen thoughts running through my head, all sorts of different things I would love to try. This card isn't quite finished. At least I don't think so. I haven't figured out what's missing yet, but I will and then I'll finish it. Maybe. The flower is, of course, SU! I stamped it on Very Vanilla with Ranger Distress ink in Dried Marigold. On Very Vanilla paper, it looks a whole lot like Groovy Guava! I mean, look close. Can you tell the difference between the large outside petals on the flower and the base of the card? I stamped one of the smaller flowers in the same SU! set (Fabulous something or other) with a yellow color of Twinkling H20s, direct to the rubber - it's very shimmery, in case you can't see it. Then I stamped the big flower again with Tattered Rose (Ranger Distress Ink) and cut it out. The green flower in the center is with Ranger Distress Ink in Peeled Paint, and again from the same SU! set. I used Blush Blossom, Always Artichoke, and Groovy Guava paper. I dirtied the edges up a bit with the Tattered Rose ink. I stamped Flourishes' "Flourished Elements" with Tattered Rose ink on the Blush Blossom paper - a large corner flourish in the lower left and a small corner flourish in the upper right. The sentiment is from Verve Visual, stamped with Peeled Paint.

I'm now going to bed. It's been a very, very long day and I think if I continue, I'll just ruin lots of cardstock!
