Do I Amuse You?

I discovered that A-Muse Studio has a retail store here in Seattle so I stopped by there after work yesterday.  I picked up a couple of things (what a surprise . . . not) and today felt like playing with their stamps.  I completed the card and showed it to my honey who suggested a bit more shading for greater dimension.  I hate it when he's right!  LOL.  The pic below is before I darkened the shadows.  What a huge difference, huh?
The Details:  Hammermill color copy 80lb cardstock, Amuse Studio Charming Gardeners, Memory Box Dancing Butterflies die, Simon Says stitched rectangle die, Memento Tuxedo Black, Glossy Accents as glue, Recollections black and white 110lb cardstock, Copic R22, 24, 27, 29 and 39.

I'm entering this in Addicted to Stamps and More #157 Make Your Mark, Penny Black and More Summer Flowers,
