Samantha Walker Blog Hop Day Two!

Good morning and happy Friday to you!  Today is day 2 of the Samantha Walker/JustRite Blog Hop! 
Today's card uses a fabulous background stamp called, Fragrant Garden. I wanted each part of the stamp to be a different color, so I used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and used the "Direct to Rubber" technique.  The beautiful part of these markers is once you are done applying your color, you can remoisten them by "huffing" on them. 
For my card I stamped the image twice and hand cut the frame portion to create a shadow box effect. I added a few sequins to pull the orange color out a bit.
I used the Bitty Blossoms Spellbinder's dies to create my orange flowers and added the little blue posies from my stash. 
Here is the set I used. :)
Be sure to visit both design teams for more wonderful inspiration!

This is gorgeous!!! I love how you created the multi-colored background and those roses are stunning!!! Thanks so much for showing them, because I always see that die, but can't picture how the flowers will look. Now I know!

Fooled me. I thought it really was a frame. I had to go back and read it again to make sure it said card. Awesome.
