Inspired by Challenge -- Spring into Color

For the latest Inspired by Challenge, I was totally inspired by team member Michele and
 her gorgeous take on the inspiration photo. Go on, click on the link and prepare to be blown away.

I decided to use Altenew's Crocus Layering Stamp and Die Set and Laurel's sketch for my card.


When I Googled crocus, I didn't see pretty red or pink crocuses. Mine look more like
tulips. I'm calling them fantasy flowers. I used Altenew inks--love that they come in sets
of three or four that makes life so much simpler. 

I cut them out with the matching dies and adhered them to a mini slimline card. I white
embossed the Penny Black sentiment, rounded off the top corner and called it done.
I think the crocus gods are frowning down on me. Thanks for stopping by!
