Winter Blooms

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Have a Heart Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the  $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is


We are showcasing CLEARLY BESOTTED  AND LIL' INKER DESIGNS  PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I decided to use the fabulous Winter Blooms from Clearly Besotted because you simply can't have enough flowers. There are two large images of flowers the one I didn't use was the snowdrops that was because I wanted to paper piece and this one suited the technique better.
I needed a sketch, its my security blanket at the moment so I turned to SplitcoastStampers card sketch of last week SC524.
I stamped my flowers using Kaiser Violet Crush on different papers and used the same papers to make the card. I felt the strip across the top was a bit plain so I added in black with the Simon Says Stamps Woodland Frame, the two longest parts just fitted.
I love the Sending die from Simon Says Stamps and because the black against the pink showed up well I didn't have to cut it out twice. I also love the sentiment from the Soaring for you, I haven't used any of the other stamps but constantly use this sentiment cos it can be used for so many different occasions.
To finish my flowers, I dotted the dots in the middle with a black pen and added a jet coloured pearl.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
