Is this inspiration photo not spring in a bottle? And some of my favorite colors to play with. CR84FN
always has the best colors and I love playing each week!
I love these colors so much that I made 2 cards!! When I saw the peonies and tulips in the inspirational photo, my mind jumped immediately to this Large Blossom cling stamp, which to me looks exactly like our pink Betty magnolia on the corner of our house. It puts on a lovely display each spring, and then the pink petals fall off the tree and carpet the ground in pink. Here is my first card:
This one started with white cardstock, stamped with the large blossom stamp in Versamark and white embossed, then colored in with markers, framed in a green paper, and onto the brighter pink background. I added a die-cut label for the sentiment stamped in the same green marker, and added some pale pink ribbon and tiny green buttons.

For my second card, I started with a piece of Hero Hues Carnation Layering Paper and stamped with versamark, embossing in white again. I only needed to shade a little bit over the already pink flowers with the same pink marker as I used above. I also used the same green marker as above, also, but it shows up a little browner, as it is layered over the carnation color. This was trimmed out, framed thinly on white cardstock, then put onto my background of a different green cardstock. I embossed my sentiment in versamark and white powder, added a seam binding ribbon dyed with spun sugar distress ink, and added a new button that Savannah gifted me last weekend, tied on with white twine.
