An Oldie But Goodie (OBG) for a Friend

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! (As if I need an excuse, right?!)
Today I am using the Mini Sets from Bugaboo Stamps.  The set I pulled the sentiment and image from is called Mini Set - Roses. In addition to the image and sentiment I have used on my card, it includes another floral image, and two more sentiments! A great value from Bugaboo Stamps!

I chose the roses in the vase, and the pretty sentiment about a friend and combined them to create my card front (inside of my card is left blank). I kept this card clean and simple, thinking that the Floral Oval Spellbinders die I used as a mat would really help set off the the idea behind the card. I layered the image, cut from Spellbinders Ovals die, on pop-dots to give it some additional dimension. The background is cut from Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics, and I embossed all my layers for the added edge to each. I added some Stickles, Star Dust, to the flowers, leaves and dragonfly to give the card a bit of a bling.

You can check out all the great images that Jodie has to offer, at the Bugaboo Store here.
