Stampin' Up! Silhouette Sentiments and Botanical Gazette DSP, create unisex Congratulations Cards

I spent the morning cleaning the house, and then as a reward, I spent some time creating.... I headed into the craft room armed with the Stamping 411 Sketch here is my card
I have used the Hostess Set, Silhouette Sentiments for this card, I have paired it with the Designer Series Paper (DSP) Botanical Gazette, which is available in the Stampin' Up! Winter Mini Catalogue.... It's hard to see in the picture, but that is the green piece behind the stamped image. I have used a lot of sponging on this card, to create the 'garden' and also to distress all pieces. I have used Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Crumbcake and Early Espresso in this card. I have used dimensionals to 'pop' the main image and it added that little bit extra that this card needed. Here is the sketch I used....  am also entering this into the Just Add InkJust add flowers challenge . My little garden has quite a few little flowers in it!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!
