Freshly Made 24: Ornate Blossom

This is the card I made for Freshly Made Sketches #24. I had a bit of a "creative block" this week. I just wasn't feeling inspired by any of my stamp sets. I don't know why. I have tons of stamp sets and they are all awesome. Even though I was having "creative block" I went ahead and made cards. They say you should write when you are fighting "writer's block." The fact that you are writing gets your brain into the right mindset and helps you overcome "writer's block." So, I took the same tactic when trying to overcome "creative block." I sat down and created a card and this is what I came up with.
