Le Jardin Botanique swap card

I signed up for Kim's new catalog swap. I wasn't going to do one, but Kim's are always awesome! I signed up for Le Jardin Botanique, which is one of my favorite new stamp sets. I started planning this card a month ago but didn't get it done before my trip to CA. Friday night was craft night at church, and I got them done! I was so happy with how they came out that I decided we will do this at Pauline's workshop Wednesday night. The only difference is that we will use textured cardstock for the cardbase so we won't stamp a background on it.
The flower is stamped with Basic Brown ink onto Confetti White cardstock and then colored with ink and a blender pen. I cut the Urban Oasis DSP 1/4" wider, punched one end with the scallop border punch and then scored it at 3/4". I adhered the flower image so it just fit under the "awning" I created and then tore the other end to finish the mat. A piece of the new white organdy ribbon finishes it off. This ribbon ties beautifully but still holds its shape.
The Kiwi Kiss cardbase is stamped with the Sanded background in Kiwi Kiss ink and then with the sentiment in Basic Brown down in the bottom corner.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Le Jardin Botanique, Sanded; Paper: Confetti White, Kiwi Kiss, Urban Oasis DSP; Ink: Basic Brown, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss; Accessories: scallop border punch, white organdy ribbon
Happy stamping!
