When flowers bloom...

I had an absolutely wonderful day on Saturday. I got together with a great group of friends for a Spring Fling cardmaking. The theme this years was "It's All About the Flowers" so we made five cards with a floral stamp as the focal point.

This is one of the cards we created:

The Lily of the Valley stamp and the sentiment are both from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates 2 stamp set and the coordinated die is Flourishes Botanical Bookplate die. The Houndstooth stamp (which so perfectly matches the Flourishes stamp) is from Impression Obsession. The cardstock is also all Flourishes.

The other two dies are Spellbinders and the embossing folder is ProvoCraft's Swiss Dots.

All the stamping is done with Stampin' Up's Garden Green and then the image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Pleated ribbon and ruffled rose were both created with May Arts sheer organza ribbon.

Since my birthday is in May and Lily of the Valley is the flower for May, I have a special fondness for them. That is why when I saw this stamp set, it instantly was put into my "MUST HAVE" list!

Since this card focuses on blue and green, I thought it would be perfect to submit for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Blue and Green challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow I'll share another card we created on Saturday.

Hugs and happy creating!
