Dandelion dreams

I made this card to send to my mother on the day she retired. The card was heavily inspired by this card by Maureen Merritt but I changed the background from white to black because I felt it made the colours of the dandelions pop even more. There are stems included in the stamp set but I chose to hand draw mine to have maximum control over where they went and how long they were.

I didn’t have a stamp that fit exactly in the oval I had diecut. Thankfully, it is easy to cut clear stamps apart and thereby make them fit better. Here I cut the little “for you” and moved it to where it fit better.
