Pick More Wildflowers

Pick more wildflowers!  I love that sentiment.  Since it is winter here in upstate New York, however, that is not a reality for me right now.  So, instead of picking flowers, I am creating more flowers.  

The minute I saw it, I just HAD to have the stamp set that I used on today's card.  This stamp, particularly, makes me smile from ear to ear.  It's such a happy scene, with those flowers dancing in the air!  I know this new-to-me set will be seeing lots of ink in the future!

For my card I used:
Stamps:  Penny Black  clear set botanical garden
               PB corner piece
               PB deco border                                                                                             
Dies:  Simon Says Stamp small folded banners                                                                                  
Our Daily Bread Designs double stitched rectangles
Inks:  Tim Holtz distress inks

I used the inks as watercolor for the flowers, and for the background.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog  - Something new
Verve Diva Inspiration Challenge - Picture/color inspiration
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - New something (stamp set and dies)
Penny Black at Allsorts - Anything goes
