This is a very simple card but I like it :) To make this card, I die cut a rectangular panel from white card stock used a fine tip Sharpie black marker and scale to draw a grid, the lines were purposely not drawn straight :). I then stamped and fuzzy cut the floral images to form my bouquet. To add more interest I layered each piece at angles :)  I have used Frames and Flowers stamp set, Crazy Double running Stitch rectangle dies
