This is a really simple design: one large flower for a focal point accented by a banner on the side for the sentiment. The flower I used is from a set called Betsy's Blossoms, although any large flower you have would work for this design.
What color combination would you use? This late in August I'm seeing lots of sunflowers in my garden, so the yellow and black just seemed like a good combination.
This flower was so large I just felt it needed the rhinestone in the center to break up the large expanse of color. The sponging around the banner helps it stand out from the black background and also to balance the color.
The banner to the right could be sized to fit any medium to small sentiment. The sentiment I used is from the My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit. Actually the banner is from the July My Paper Pumpkin Kit (The one with the Cake Topper).
This design would work for so many different stamps. It doesn't just have to be flowers. For the second card I used the bicycle from the My Paper Pumpkin August Kit and a sentiment from a set called Delightful Dozen.
Are you starting to think about stamps you own and what would work for this design? You could turn it around too and put the banner on the left side. Time to hit the craft area and play.
