BC251: In Bloom

Today I'm sharing a very simple card using a bloom, which is our current Blogger's Challenge.  I love flowers and use them quite frequently on my cards.  They are one stamp I can't seem to get enough of!

I used a new set from The {Stamps} of Life called umbrella4you.  My flower is a prima flower which I have a ton of and need to start using them up.

I decorated the inside of the card, which I don't do a lot of, but love how it looks.


Want to join us for blogger's challenge this week, you can link up at any of the blogs participating in the blog hop or over at Lisa's blog here.

Here is another card I created using the same set and creating my own background strip for it.  This uses the FTL174 sketch, I love their clean & simple sketches! 


Love the color combination on this card!  If you haven't seen the Design Seeds blog, it's a great source for color inspiration.

Great cards, Kim! Love the design of the get well card--and thanks for the reminder to use the millions of Prima flowers I've collected, too.
