With or Without a sentiment??

I used the pretty and fun new Simon Says Stamp, Plantiful Puns stamp set to make a card for my mom:)!...
This stamp has some beautiful image stamps, and Simon has combined these flowers, plants and leaves with some cute and funny punny sentiments.  I wanted a sentiment that would fit my mom, though, she's not a "punny woman"...hee I opted for the Messages for Everyday stamp set for my card in lieu of a sentiment from the set.  I stamped and then colored the pitcher, then hand cut it with scissors.  I then stamped, and colored the flowers and leaves.  I popped the pitcher over the flowers, and added a few Tonic Jewel Drops in the leaves.   Here's a close up...
I LOVE making cards!!  ONE of the cool things about it, is that if you are careful, you can take cards apart and REDO!!  I had ORIGINALLY made the card WITHOUT a sentimtent.  I kept looking at it, and decided I wanted to try putting a thin sentiment on my card.  SO...I took the stitched panel OFF the card, and stamped the sentiment...not so hard, and I personally think I like it much better with the sentiment.  Here's the original....what do YOU think??
Such a pretty and fun set of stamps...Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. I love it with the sentiment. It feels more finished somehow - and brilliant idea to put it under the panel. I think the over all effect is quite sophisticated!

  2. I like the sentiment. It's a lovely card.

  3. I like it with the sentiment. The Nuvo Jewel Drops and popping up the pitcher really make this card special!

  4. Definitely with the sentiment - looks like a consensus here. =^..^=

  5. Beautiful card, Lisa. Most definitely better with the sentiment. It grounds the image. And, I really like how you stamped the sentiment below the top panel. Your mom will love the card. Thanks for the inspiration.


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
