Statement of My Heart Garden Impressions Card

The Statement of My Heart photopolymer stamp set is a limited edition stamp set that is only available in the Gotta Have It All Bundle through May 31, 2018. Today I’ve paired it with the new Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP.) I usually use card stock and embellishments in colors from the DSP I’m using, but today’s card shows how you don’t have to do that. The two card stock colors are not in the DSP, but still go with it beautifully. Sometimes you just have to look at the DSP and the card stock together to see if they “go” together. 

 

Here’s what I made:

All the colors I used were inspired by the Picture Perfect Party DSP.
