Spring Flowers

I love Tuesday Crafty days.  We have a group of about 8-10 women, and at anyone time at least 5 get together for crafting  and chatting.

Today, I played with Simon Says Stamp's Spring Flowers, and PTI's  Keep it Simple: Just Because sentiments.

I stamped the stamp set many many times and clear embossed it.  Then I inked it up with distress inks, fussy cut the images and built bouquets.  I was inspired by Laura Bassen's technique for coloring the blooms, her post is here.

I have 5 cards, and like bouquets they each have their differences. 

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
