 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Zoo Friends"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"You May Bow"
                                                         

Today's feature is "Column's and Topiaries".  I thought it would be fun to place my Topiary outside my front door so this is what I came up with.



A little dimension was added to the topiary by stamping a second set of flowers, coloring and cutting them out, then using my stylus and pressing in the center so the petal would pop up.


I couldn't stop there....I stamped more flowers for the swag above the door.... 

and for the wreath....a little bow.


I wish my front door looked like this!!!!  Thanks for stopping by today.  If you leave a comment on my blog and my teammate's blogs you will be in the drawing to win today's stamp set!

I am entering this card with Simon Says Stamp Blog - Rain or Flowers....I am showing the flowers!
