Giggle....it's almost Spring!!!

I'm loving my new stamp set, Awash with Flowers (120549 Clear Mount)! Hostesses will earn this NEW set for FREE during the month of April with a $350 workshop or personal order! This set will be in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog which comes out in July! I recommend using block size 'H' (for the stems) and 'C' (for the flowers and leaves). With these two blocks, I was able to stamp the images and it worked great!

Two-Step Stampin' is probably one of my favorite stamping techniques simply because it's so forgiving and doesn't HAVE to be perfectly in place! It can be 'off' a little and still maintain a whimsical look and feel to it! With 18 images in this new set - it'll be perfect for many different occasions! I'm looking forward to sharing several more Sneak Peeks with you later this week!

My card layout today was inspired by the Clean & Simple Stamping blog, with their sketch #82.
My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown's challenge this week to use: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Marigold Morning! I swaped out Old Olive for Wild Wasabi and So Saffron for Marigold Morning (since I didn't have those two colors). I thought Old Olive and So Saffron were very similiar and kept with the fun combination of these colors!

The Pink Elephant blog has a Spring challenge this week and with these bright, fun colors and pretty, whimsical flowers - I thought this card was just right!
