Pretty Blue Spring Flowers

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a pretty floral card in cool spring colors for the Winnie & Walter Belated 2nd Birthday Bash Floral Challenge.  This was an easy one to make because I already had the pieced card background lying in wait in my stash.  :)  I used one of the fun free printables from the Winnie & Walter shop.  This squiggly frame is from their 1st Birthday Bash Digital Elements Collection.  

The flowers and stems are from a very old Stampin' Up set that I got at a thrift store. I don't know the name of it. I stamped them on the printable with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Desert Night (THANKS, Jennifer McGuire and Altenew!!) and Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn. The two tones of blue were done by stamping them again without reinking. I die cut the panels with my My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set and layered them over my card base. I love the clean fresh look. Do you?

Thank you for stopping in. I have been making tons of cards lately for lots of challenges. Hope you are participating in all the fun games, too!

LOVE this card Janis! The fresh blue and spring green plaid is so pretty and looks like a country breeze feels! Wish I had a working printer because that squiggle frame is adorable and perfectly frames your sweet flowers. Aren't those stitched dies the best ever? They add a touch of texture but let the image shine. You are on a roll my friend!
