Bursting with Flowers

Can you tell I am ready for Spring?  I've been making a lot of paper flowers lately but I would so love to see the real thing.  The one thing I miss most about apartment living is the lack of a flower garden.  I love flowers.  The Fusion Card Challenge had a great floral inspiration and I liked the sketch, too.  You can do either the sketch challenge, the inspiration photo challenge or you can combine them, which is what I decided to do for my card.

Stamp Set:  My Friend (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Pear Pizzazz (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White (Stampin' Up!), Happy Harvest Paper Pad ( Doodlebug Design, Inc.); Accessories & Tools:  Floral Fusions Sizzlits, Bird Builder Punch, 1/8" Silver Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots (Stampin' Up!)

With the boldness of the floral paper and the die cut flowers, I knew the stamped part of the card needed to be bold as well.  I love this hello from the My Friend Stamp Set.

Here is the current sketch and inspiration photo from the Fusion Card Challenge.  Just click the image below to find all the details.  You still have time to join, too.
