Out of the Box Hibiscus

Happy Wednesday!
I stamped the flower on a large white scrap, masked it, and stamped two more flowers around it. I then placed my oval cutting template (CM) on top and cut out the oval except around the flower petals. I hand cut around the flowers, so it looks like they are floating off the edge of the oval. I colored the flowers with copics, matted it on a black oval, and attached it with dimensionals to the black/white/rock dsp/black gingham base. An oval sentiment finishes it up!
I kept this card relatively simple, but you could kick it up a notch with some brads in the corners.

Thanks for stopping by!
