Exploring stamping...

Recently, I have been working on using more and more stamps in my card :) Though I don't have as many stamps in my collection as aggressive stampers might have, but still I have a decent collection as far as me being a new card maker is concerned ;) Also, I won quite a few sets recently. One such set was from Stamping up which I won at House of Card's giveaway. 
So, the stamp set is cut out on a rectangular piece of rubber which is stuck over foam. I however, decided to cut out a small rectangular piece of rubber stamp and use it for stamping :D, I surely will use the actual stamps soon :) I was inspired by multiple challenges. Here's my card...
To make this card, I did two generations of stamping with that little rectangle using the challenge colors to create the vertical panel. The flowers were stamped, inked and fuzzy cut from a separate piece of paper. Sentiment was stamped on a vellum and all the elements were stuck on card base using glue stick and foam dots. Finally, pearls were added :).

The challenges and source of inspiration are-


Supplies used -
Stamps - Flowers from Scrappy Cat - Sunny Days, Sentiment from Paper sweeties - You make me smile
Inks - Memento Dew drop Dye Inks
Others- Vellum & Pearls (from Darice)
