Magnolia Stamp Lover's "Summer Flowers" challenge

I have a Cricut Expression that I don't use nearly enough.  I guess I'm a stamper at heart although I do dabble in other crafts.  I recently pulled out a couple of cartridges to see if I could combine them with my stamping.  This Damask Decor cartridge makes some pretty nice backgrounds.  I cut a 5.5" x 5.5" card and then cut this particular background at 5" x 5".  I have lots of 12" x 12" paper pads with patterns too big to use on cards.  I find they do work well this way.  I actually pulled out my Copic color wheel to find a color that worked well with this particular shade of green.  All in all, I'm pleased with it, I plan to use this cartridge for more cards in the future.  If you like flowers, the MSL flowers challenge is the place you need to be.
