Blossoms

I'm on a roll this morning, playing along with various challenges, 
so I'll start with the first one I tackled.

Over at 'Simply Less is More', the theme this week is
'One Layer - Your favourite flower'

I had a look at a couple of different flower stamps and decided I'd go with some blossoms, especially as it is blossom time here as we go into spring.


I decided that ivory cardstock would work very nicely for these flowers as they are quite soft looking.   I coloured the stems and flowers with Distress Markers, did a bit of huffing & puffing and firmly stamped directly onto the cardstock.   Again using a Distress Marker, I added a sentiment.
I felt the card was lacking something, so I drew a border using the fine tip of the Distess Marker, which I feel finishes it off perfectly.
