For today’s card, I used the Love What You Do stamp set and Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (DSP,) along with the coordinating Faceted Dots. The sentiment is stamped on Shimmer White card stock that was cut using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and watercolored in Grapefruit Grove ink. A couple of flowers fussy cut from another pattern of the DSP and a twine bow are the finishing touches.
