Sending Oodles of Love ~ Waltzingmouse Blog Party

oodlesoflovemaureenplut

Good morning!  It’s the 17th of the month which means there’s a party going on over at the Waltzingmouse Blog

Blog-Party-Logo 70%

This month’s theme is Spring Flowers.  Though I have MANY Waltzingmouse Stamp sets, I have very few floral sets!  I really had to dig to find these sweet little French Country flowers in the French Country Set.  I had envisioned making a flower out of the petal image, but it looked better in my head than on cardstock…lol.  So then I decided to make a pretty background with the other little floral images in the set.  I LOVE IT!  To add to the “flower” theme, I pulled out 1 of the 3 burlap flowers I have (yes, I’m hoarding!) and liked the contrast it gave against those sweet pink and tangerine blooms.  Thanks for visiting!  I can’t wait to see what everyone makes today :)

Oh I would be hoarding too. The burlap flower is absolutely stunning yet soft and delicate against the overall design.

This is just beautiful. I love your floral background stamping--I did not think of those flowers when I was making my card, and I wish I did. They are so pretty.

The background paper you made is fabulous - so bright and cheerful. Love the burlap rose too! And isn't that sentiment just such fun!

Just beautiful and I would have never thought to pull out my French Country set for a flower. Your background is so pretty and that burlap flower, amazing.

I love the contrast of your burlap flower to the soft tones you used as well.
A really pretty card.
One day I'm going to get the hang of these flowers and sit down and make dozens of them 'cause then I'll have a huge stash I can dip into and they really do add a wow factor to a card don't they !!!
