Is it Friday yet?

Have you ever just had one of those weeks?!? Well, I am having one, I guess. I wasn't going to make anything today because I didn't feel any creative ideas coming to me and I didn't want to clean off my desk. So I was just going to look at other people's card and try to get some ideas for after my fairy godmother comes and cleans my desk. Well, I found this pretty card, and loved how she left some of the flowers and leaves hanging over the edges of the frame. So, I cleared off just enough space to stamp these flowers...good thing they're little. I followed the layout from this Ten Minute Monday card from the Clean and Simple Stamping blog. Thank goodness for all the inspiration out there, when I'm totally drawing a blank. Now if I could just pay attention better to lining up my punch!!!

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Words of Sympathy, SU Botanical Blooms
Ink: Colorbox Frost White, PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Hibiscus Burst, PTI Ripe Avocado
Cardstock: PTI Hibiscus Burst, PTI Ripe Avocado, PTI White
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Stylized Flowers Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch

This is SO pretty! I like your "out of the box" flowers. I wouldn't even have noticed your border "oops" if you hadn't mentioned it.
