Share Joy Challenge #30


I am so glad that it is Thursday! Not only is the weekend well on its way, but the start of April's Share Joy Challenges are under way! Yeah! You know I am all about florals, so this weeks I couldn't resist using them on my card.

I started by using the sketch, but it morphed into the inspiration, I guess it's both? Whatever. I used the adorable Bloom Where You're Planted die set, and created a floral cluster in the coordinating colors onto a white card base, that I had masked and sponged with light blue ink.

I die cut the various flowers from Cupcake, Lollipop, Candy Corn, Potato Chip, Granny Smith, and Salt Water Taffy Card stocks. I sponged on a bit of ink in a coordinating color to the edges of each die cut, and adhered them with foam, and dry adhesives.

I stamped my sentiment, and added a few sequins, and seed beads. I realized I had stamped it in black when I feel it would have been better to do it in brown. Ever do that? Ah, well. It's still fun, and full of floral goodness! 

I hope you'll join us! The graphic and rules are below! See you at the challenge blog!
