Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #228 Flowers

                                        Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #228 - Flowers

                        Kim is hosting today's challenge and the theme is FLOWERS!

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the texture theme.

I used a rubber stamp from Rubbernecker titled 'Bold Daisy'. I have had this stamp for many years but a new version of it can be found here: I made two of the flowers dimensional, added two corner die cuts to the bottom rectangle and used an embossed background from some older paper I had in my stash.

When I made this card we were in the midst of a deep freeze here in Alberta and it felt good to make a flower card, just to remind one's self that this too shall pass and life will return to the garden. Winter is beautiful but Lord I hate the cold.

On that note, have a great warm week!
