Wildly Grateful

As the first day of fall approaches, I pay a tribute to summer with this pretty wildflower card using the Lovely You Bundle, some delightful late summer colors and a touch of woodgrain and gingham for added interest. I’m going to tell you something. I struggled with this card. For the life of me I could not seem to stamp a clean image – without the edge of the stamp on my card. Ugh. I hate it when that happens, don’t you? Ultimately I was able to manage it and get the card done and I’m glad I persevered because I love it!
