Secret Garden Sampler

I've discovered that samplers don't necessarily have to have squares!  Here's one I made using the "Secret Garden" stamp set and the "Secret Garden" framelits.  The greeting is from the "My Friend" stamp set.  This is an 8 X 8 square.  I used Whisper White and Calypso Coral card stock.  The ink colors are Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso.  I placed a Vintage Faceted Button in the middle of each flower (I also pop-dotted each layer of the flower on top of each other) and tied Calypso Coral Baker's Twine into the button.  I'm happy with how it turned out - very elegant.  What's nice about this is that the colors can be changed to suit the colors in your house or wherever you want to put it!  For a welcome table at a wedding, wouldn't white on white - everything white - be absolutely gorgeous?  The possibilities are endless!
