Spring Flowers

This week the SweetStamps blog had an inspiration theme. When I saw this image, the word "spring" immediately popped into my head and off I went. I love the SweetStamps flower stamps. I've used parts of  the stamp, blossoms, in the past, but I've never used the whole stamp before. It fit perfectly with the Sizzix pot die cut. The result made me smile. I colored the flowers with distress markers and fussy cut them so I could plant them in the pot. The background panel is a piece of designer paper which is light gray with white polka dots.Since I wanted to show the happiness spring brings, I added a bow and the sentiment adorned with glitter.
I am entering my card into these challenges: Tuesday Throwdown --recipe challenge (1 image, 1 design paper, and purple); Great Impressions -- pink, polka dots, and glitter; and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- anything goes
