Blossoms and Blooms for Penny Black

Good morning and happy Friday! I hope you have some fun things planned this Easter weekend. Hubby has to work as usual :-(  His days off are Mondays and Tuesdays. But at least he should be home by 3pm.

Since today is the 18th, it's time for our midmonth reminder at Penny Black and More. This month our theme is Blossoms and Blooms. I hope you'll join us if you haven't yet, and you can enter up to 3 times for more chances to win. As usual we have several fabulous sponsors giving away some fantastic prizes.


The main floral stamp on my card is from the set "Delicate Florals" by Penny Black, one of my new favorite stamp sets.
To make the paper in the background I tried a watercolor wash, then I stamped a background stamp (from Whimsy Stamps - Life Defined) onto the watercolor paper.  The fern and grass in the background are stamps from the set "Enjoy Life" by Penny Black.

Sentiment is from Flonzcraft, one of our sponsors this month. I embellished with twine and glitter.


Playing along in a few challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and More -   Anything goes 
Crafting By Designs - Anything goes 
Fab 'n' Funky -  Flowers

  
Hope you have a fabulous day and 
a nice and sunny Easter.
