Its time for flowers

Hi There ~

Now that the snow is gone, its time to break out those flower stamps and dies.  This is my third flower card today, earlier I posted these.

I broke out a new stamp set that has been waiting patiently since early February Hand Drawn Florals from Avery Elle.  I used copics to color the biggest bloom, and matched the ribbon die. The sentiment also comes from that same set.

As I was laying it out, I felt it  needed a little bit more.  My hands were cramped from coloring and earlier die cutting, so I grabbed a few Altenew Cosmo's lying on my table and I used those behind the main image.

I am entering this card to Color Throwdown #485Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -Floral Frenzy, and Simon Says Stamp's National Craft Month challenge.





Thanks for stopping by!

The flowers are so striking on the black card base and I like that gingham below to tie everything together.

I LOVE the drama of the black and white with that pop of colour Cat! Fabulous colouring too! I'm afraid my visits will be sporadic until my wifi boosters arrive as my signal keeps dropping out! Have a wonderful day my friend! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx
