SSS Spring Flower Fling

Thank you so much for joining us for our March Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  Temperatures are on the rise and there is just one short week until the official first day of Spring!  We are all so ready to put away our snowflakes and break out the flowers in our craft rooms!  Stampin' Up! has so many options for Spring-time flowers and we are showing you just a few of those today!
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 4 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop –Cynthia R. of Ink-A-Doodle Creations. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

 I'm excited to show off this soft, springy card today. I just love the Happy Watercolor stamp set and I knew it was the right stamp set for this Flower themed blog hop.The great thing about flowers is how versatile they are - you can pretty much use them for any kind of situation. I left the sentiment off of this card just for that purpose. I intend to stamp one inside when something pops up that I don't have a card for. I want to point out that I used the brushed gold cardstock for the base of the card and also for the hexagon die cut. I love the elegance it adds to this simple design.

Your next stop is Anastasia R. of Stampin' Blondie. Happy Hopping!
