Retro Flowers

I got a commission request for a card in a box for an 18 year old.  I have just finished doing five using the Hero Arts roses (similar to this one) - perfect for Mother's Day but maybe not for an 18 year old... so I looked through my stamps and found an awesome Hero Arts/Sizzix set that would be perfect...It's an older set and no longer available but can be found here on Amazon

I used a variety of distress inks to stamp.  I used my MISTI which mean I could stamp each one a couple of times to get a good coverage of ink.    I added the girl's name with some die cut letters.   I used some flourish die cuts and a Hero Arts Spring Branch die as well. 

I had fun doing this one.

Entering into the challenge at City Crafter Challenge.
