Hello there!  Thanks for stopping in today.  I made this card quite a while ago and forgot to post it?  

How is that possible?  

Anyway, the best part about making this card is that it was all for fun... no challenge, no deadline, I just had some new stamps and wanted to get them inky.  

The Bold Blooms stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh is simply adorable!  I love that Paulina included solid stamps for us non-colorers (would someone please tell me if this is a word or what I should be using in its place, please ;)  My goal for this project was just to stamp and die cut a bunch of these blooms and then create with them.

Bold Blooms looks great accenting this Congratulations sentiment from Simply Stated by Catherine Pooler Designs.  Funny, when this stamp set was being designed I fought tooth and nail to have this particular stamp removed from the set.  Catherine envisioned stampers using it in fun and unique ways, I didn't see it.  Fast forward a few months and I'm a huge fan, I love it and made sure to tell Catherine just that!

This card came together quite easily.  I added some background sponging with the Mod Squared Stencil to ground my focal point and a strip of patterned paper for more color and interest.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today.  Have a good one!
