Are flowers blooming in your neighborhood?  How do you like walking in nature and smelling their aroma?

I have seen quite a lot of flower blooms in my neighborhood and on my craft desk!  Who doesn't like flowers?  Flowers can be considered my go-to item for a girly card.

I've made a card with five flowers to share with you:

Perhaps the photo is not doing its justice here.  It is very difficult to see the Sweet Leaf (light green) scallops beneath the pink panel.  But trust me, a tiny scallop edge does exist!

The flowers are really easy to make with the magic done by Cricut Art Philosophy.  I really like this stamp set from the retired Lucy Workshop on the Go as base and shade stamping is one of my faves.  I first cut out the flowers using Art Philosophy, then stamped the shade in Blush, followed by the outline in Whisper, and finally the center in Buttercup.

The card is based on a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

The card is also entering the challenge at

3.  Tuesday Throwdown - Smell the Roses

So much for my flowers today.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the flower bloom!
