More Petal Potpourri

Oh my!  I have totally fallen in love with the Petal Potpourri flowers.  Today I combined it with the the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from Colour Me...!  Talk about a bright, cheerful Springlike card.  I'm definitely thinking Spring given the fact that come tomorrow, I'll be under a Winter Storm Watch which I'm sure is going to change to a Winter Storm Warning.  They've already told us to expect 5+ inches of snow.  I just knew Winter couldn't just leave us alone here in Iowa.  You know, I can't complain since the last two weeks have been in the high 40s and 50s.  So, here is that pretty Spring card I made this morning.

For the center of the flower, I was going to use some Crystal Effects but I remembered I had these cute little epoxy stickers from Stampin' Up!®  You can find them in the 2015 Occasions Catalog on page 28.  Now that I've "re-discovered" the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers and love them, it's time to order more.


Stamp Sets:  Banner Blessings, Petal Potpourri; Inks:  Rich Razzleberry, Tangelo Twist; Card Stock:  Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack, All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Flower Medallion Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker, SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

Here is the sketch I used from Freshly Made Sketches.

The pretty colors are from the Colour Me...! Challenge.

    1. Thanks, Tara. With snow falling as I write this, Spring seems rather far away. I'm thinking there will be more pretty paper flowers in my future. :-)
