I used a stamp set from the Sale A Bration catalog- Love You Still, have you had the chance to look at all the goodies in that one? There were so many that I liked and I had to pick and choose which ones to get. I thought this would be a nice one as it was a bit different than any in my stash.
To make it I inked it up with early espresso avoiding the grassy area at the base of the arch. You won't see in this picture I also have turned the arch on it's side. I then cleaned the stamp and inked it again just putting ink on the top half where the flowers are then lined up the "posts" and stamped to make a flowered frame. This will be much easier when my stamparatus arrives, I'm anxiously awaiting!! I cut it out and adhered to a piece of wood textures DSP, then bordered that onto early espresso card stock then onto sweet sugarplum card stock base that I had stamped and then ran through the big shot with the leaf embossing folder. The sweet sugarplum is a light purple and I used fresh fig to color the big flowers on the frame, added calypso coral to give a little pop.
