I decided to take the plunge and by the stamp and dies for this SU "Secret Gardens" set.  Since I do tend to make a lot of CAS cards, this set makes it so easy to put one together very quickly.  I love the way the stamps and dies coordinate.  I didn't stamp the leaves at all but just die cut them from a scrap piece of a green card stock.  I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Cherry Cobbler card stock for the flower. The picture doesn't show it but I also stamped just the center of the flower and cut it out by hand.  Then the edges were ruffled up a bit and attached to the main piece with a glue dot.  It gives just a little dimension the flower.  I can see myself making a lot more cards similar to this with various colors of flowers - especially when I get in a pinch and need a really quick card.  It's a great design to use for multiple occasions.

Thanks for stopping by!
