I stamped something!

Woo Hoo! I finally felt strong enough to stamp something! I had to stand the whole time, but I got it done and posted too! I am going stir crazy not being able to play with my stamps daily.

This was for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. I LOVE Kelly's work! I CASE it often (or at least get totally inspired by it!)

I did change quite a bit from hers, but I really think you can see the original inspiration. I just bought this Crate paper before I went into the hospital and didn't get a chance to use it, but it was PERFECT for this card! I LOVE the idea of the "chocolate" dipped cherries, but I don't have anything to "dip". LOL So I went a totally different direction and used the flower from Happy Harmony. I can't believe how perfectly Ruby Red matches the Crate paper! Since I used a more muted color for the red, I needed a more muted green, so Mellow Moss it was! I really love this color combo! Hmmm I wonder if it's on my color combo site....Nope, but it is now ;) I changed the ribbon, because I thought my card needed a bit more moss, and I omitted the circular embellishment because it didn't fit LOL. The other things I changed are the stitches, I used a cross-stitch instead of the V, and I used different stamps from All in a Row. I really like how this card turned out! Thanks Kelly for your awesome inspiration!
