Stamp Simply---Spring Time Style!

Now that May is here, I think we could all use a breath of nice spring air ---am I right? Well, that's what this week's Stamp Simply challenge is ALL about--SPRING! Here are the rules, pink, green and flowers. That's it! You know you can't resist this one!

If you want to check out all the details, head on over to Sharon's place by clicking HERE. I have to make a confession. I had the challenge all worked out with a fun card that had a different shape to it. But, Thursday night we went to go shopping for a birthday present for my mother in law and BAM a really cute gift that bag just grabbed my eye -- polka dots, flowers and some bling. This would make a really great card layout! So I went back to the "mom cave" to stamp another one for Sharon's challenge! I wish I had a picture of the gift bag so you could see it - but the only picture of it is in my head! No jokes please.


This is truly a simple card. The flowers are part of a new *soon to be released* set from Impression Obsession. It's called Flower Duos II and its a set full of two step stamping options from dandelions and poppies to sunflowers and roses. It's really lovely! So, be sure to check out the IO site in the coming weeks! The bottom is a piece of green that was stamped with a circle background stamp from Amuse Art Stamps. I stamped and cut out the flowers, added some bling and a bow and that's it!

Here's a close up...
