A spring basket card

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be here to share my first card as a "Waltzingmouse Maker"! Let me show you what I made...

a card using Spring Baskets and Faux Fun !

If you saw my blog hop card you might remember that I paired these sets together in that as well, but today's card has a different look. I kept a sentiment off as well, as I thought it might end up as a birthday or even a thank you...I'll wait and see, LOL!

I stamped the beautiful border stamp with Versamark and heat set it with clear detail embossing powder. For the focal image, I stamped the basket first, then the flowers on top, and the flowers again on a separate piece of Kraft cardstock. I then colored it, cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.

Thanks for taking a look at my card today, and don't forget to keep checking back--we'll have posts Monday-Friday!
