My first card uses Beautiful Blooms III combined with Birthday Sentiments.
I stamped the outline flower cluster and then added one of the inside marking stamps to the main flower. I coloured it all and then very carefully hand cut round it all - a bit tricky as the stems are quite thin.
I stamped the greeting on a sky blue strip of card and then added the flower cluster on top using foam pads for extra dimension.

My next card uses Beautiful Blooms II combined with Simply Said Birthday.
I'm a bit in love with highlight colouring so I wanted to use this on my card, but first I stamped the outline flower all over a piece of white card to make a background. This is so out of my CAS comfort zone!
I die cut the stitched window from this background card and added colour to just this section choosing shades to tie in with the base card. This was adhered to a piece of foam to raise it up before putting back on the background. I also used pads to lift the sentiment flag strip.

Pens: Copic, R20, R22, R24
My final share for today - yep I'm going in reverse order - uses Beautiful Blooms I combined with
Simply Said Blocks II.
This is a favourite design choice of mine - a splash of watercolour with a simple black stamp on top. I used brusho powders for my background and several layers of Memento black ink on top.
