Trying to jump back in the saddle again

I don't like when I haven't really stamped in awhile since it takes me so long to try to figure out what I'm doing. We went to a 1st birthday party on Saturday and I had no idea what I wanted to make. I saw a card very similar to this one made by Kirsten Dubosque in the February Cards magazine and was impressed by how simple yet stunning it was so I decided to CASE it.

I used PapertreyINK's Stamper's Select White for the card base and stamped the images from Beautiful Blooms with Versamagic Dew Drops in Thatched Straw, Mango Madness, Persimmon, Aloe Vera, and Oasis Green on it. The ribbon is some that I got from my Secret Sister in a past round and I think it's by Heidi Grace. The smaller flowers are popped up on dimensionals. I like the way this one turned out :-)

I'm in the middle of laundry and trying to get my stamp room a little cleaned and organized--I moved out to the family room/kitchen counter to make the kids' Valentine's cards (all 72 of them!) and just sort of threw everything back in there when I was done. Maybe getting things put away will motivate me a little more.

Thanks for visiting!
