A Floral Fantasy at A Spoon Full of Sugar

This week at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week it is a Floral Fantasy.. that is pretty easy, and fun! We just need to see some sort of flowers on your card.

For my card it was just perfect timing to use another new Stampavie image!! This is from artist Helz Cuppleditch and is called "Teddy Say it with flowers". How wonderful is she??? Perfect for Nesties Oval die cuts huh? She is colored with my Copics.
For the card I started with a light pink card stock as the base, as well as a scalloped oval to mat behind my image. I doodled around the image with a white gel pen.

Now how pretty and soft are those papers? They are a new stack from K & Co. and I think it is called WP Gypsy Baby - I just feel in love with it, such pretty patterns! I picked three patterns, the stripes I added a Martha Stewart Double Dot Scalloped border punch and then sewed down everything, oh after I inked the edges with a pale pink ink.

Now it was time for my "Floral Fantasy" .. I could not find any flowers in my stash that matched perfectly.. too pink.. too yellow... just nothing! So I pulled out my white flowers and then used my Copics and my air compressor and two shades of pink (R81 & R83) and made the perfect color! Love that! For the centers I used some Making Memories pearls, these are wonderful they are flat on the bottom, easy to just add a glue dot. They came in a little box of "gems and pearls" that I found last week. Might have to get more of these.... And now those leaves. They are a Martha punch, a leaf that I have had forever! Why haven't I used it before??? Well I will now cuz I love how they look with the flowers!

The sentiment... again another little plug for my friend Jessica's stamps The Greeting Farm sentiment collection called "Butterfly Wishes" I am so loving this set, it is so fun and different! You get quite a few wonderful sentiments and quotes for the inside of your card. Check it out! OH and while there... Greeting farm just released new stamps again... you are going to love I am sure!

Now you can pop over to Spoon Full of Sugar to see a whole bunch of flowers and wonderful cards from the other DT... We all just love flowers! And don't forget to make up your own floral fantasy and join in for the prize!

Better get my grove on and get busy.. today is MIL shopping day and lots on the list of places to stop.. including JoAnn's ... and I don't get to go there very often!!
HUGS and have a wonderful Tuesday!
