Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life!


 Hello friends!  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful week!

I'm popping in to share a real quick card I made with this month's release from Our Daily Bread designs!  I stamped the small Zinnia from the Zinnia Set twice, as well as the bees.  I cut the large zinnia, the bees and the leaves with the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Dies, then hand cut a smaller section of the second zinnia to pop up on dimentionals on the first.  I embossed the pretty designer paper, also just released and called Blooming Garden Paper Collection, with an MPress folder. I lightly sponged over the embossed pattern with Gumball Green in to make it pop a little.  I matted the designer paper with a layer of Summer Starfruit and put that on a base of Gumball Green, all from SU!.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento and cut with a Spellbinders die.  I then lightly stamped around the edges of the die cut with the new Honeycomb Mini.  I LOVE that little stamp!

I hope this reminds you that spring is getting very close now!!!  

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
Crafting For All Season #72 (spring into Spring)


Thanks for stopping by!!!

Today's Blessing:
"If we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins."
