Spring Flowers

I spent all afternoon yesterday cleaning and straightening in my craft room. There was so much mess, I think it was stifling my mojo. I even threw away some of my paper scraps. GASP!!! I know, I know. I'm sure I'll want something next week that I threw away.  So today, I was eager to get creating again.
Spring is in the air all around blog land. Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week is spring blossoms. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to make this card.
Everything but the card base, I found in my scrap file. The stamp is from SU. I colored the stamp with watercolor pens and then stamped it on the background. The label is also from SU stamped with Certainly Celery. I'm upset they discontinued that color. It was one of my favorites. The hello is from The Angel Company stamped with Melon Mambo. I had to move the label to the opposite side to accommodate for the flower branch. I added a little pink rhinestone to the corner of the label.
Here is the sketch


  1. Very pretty! The burlap is a nice touch.
