All The Flowers

I must be thinking dreaming of things to come.....
I can hardly wait to see all my Spring flowers bloom....
I know it's early, but it has been a long, brutal winter....
I am so ready to see the backside of it and get outside into the fresh air!!

I guess that is why I have been creating lots of "flower cards.
When I saw the JustRite challenge  #117 this week, I told myself I was
making 3 cards.....
not sure if I will accomplish that, but here is my second one at least!!

We were to use the sketch below for the JustRite challenge....


 I started out with some newly, just purchased Graphic 45 DS paper  
"botanical tea"....it is so pretty!!
The blue polka dot background paper is Bo Bunny.


I used Spellbinders die "Decorative Labels Eight"....
I stamped a JustRite sentiment from the set "Seeds of Summer"
I can't tell you how many times I reach for this set, I just love it!!

My flowers were cut using the Spellbinders "Blooms Four"...
I colored them using the baby wipe/gelato technique!!

I have one day left...wonder if I can get my 3rd card done!!!!!

Entering the following challenges:

Sweet Stamps .... "Dies"
and
Through The Craft Room Door .... "Anything Goes"
