Spring flowers

Hello blogland, Doris here. Can you believe it's March already? That means spring will be here soon, my favorite season! Some of the flowers in my yard have already started to pop up, and that helped me get inspired for this week's challenge at Cuttin' and Stampin' - flowers. I made several cards to share with you today to get your inspiration going:

I tried to mix some bright colors for this card and love the a.muse orange chevron ribbon against the card base.

Supplies used:
a.muse studio cardstock
a.muse stamp set Springtime Day
a.muse chevron ribbon
memento ink, black
pop dots

I don't know what made me stamp the image on the doily, but once I did I loved how it looked and wanted to keep this card simple, and added just a little elegance with the ribbon and pearls.

Supplies used:
kraft cardstock
paper doily
flatback pearls
sheer/satin ribbon
a.muse stamp sets Springtime Days and Contemporary Greetings
memento ink, cocoa

Some fussy cut roses that I copic colored and popped them up on top of the embossed cardstock base, then distressing it just a little with some sand paper.

Supplies used:
a.muse cardstock
embossing folder
memento ink, black
a.muse stamp sets All for Love and Studio Sampler One
flatback pearls
pop dots
I hope you will join us for this week's challenge at Cuttin' and Stampin'. Don't forget to get your own Amuse Products (and you won't be disappointed!)
