Flowers!

Hi everyone!  It's time for our monthly challenge at Lily Pad Cards sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  This month the theme is flowers.  I used a new stamp from Penny Black that I fell in love with on sight, called Scented Message.  To me, these are Forget-me-nots, so I colored them accordingly.  At home I'll have clouds of these pretty soon in our gardens - such a wonderful blue, just like the sky!


supplies: cream parchment and white cardstock, blue panel from Basic Grey's Picadilly 6" paper pad, Penny Black #4239K Scented Message, colored with Memento markers and shaded with tea dye distress ink, Papertrey Ink tiny tags and tiny tags die, Adirondack Stonewash and Versafine onyx black inks, Nesties Labels Four, doodlebug designs button, ribbn from Michaels

Please visit Lily Pad Cards to see what all the other Design Team members made for this challenge, and then enter your own card for a $25.00 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!

Oh so beautiful! Love all the softness of your blue. Makes me smile :)We are "a blooming" in south Georgia but the March winds and recent rains are blowing away and washing away lots of our blooms. Thanks for the inspiration. BTW love that PB stamp!
