Hopefully spring is just around the corner so let's have some bright spring blooms this week from Francoise Read's new set of stamps Flower Medley. This set has just oodles of pretty flower shapes & the larger ones have a nice sentiment running through them. My outside layer has been softly sponged using the Misty Meadow set & then randomly stamped with some of the small flowers & the sentiment. This was then layered onto yellow & blue card  before attaching to the card blank. The inner layer was achieved in much the same way with some heavier sponging & larger flowers & don't forget to tie the ribbon before attaching to the card. Now stamp the largest flowers, twice yellow & twice blue before cutting out & giving a little sculpting. Attach a felt brad to the centre of each flower before securing to design with glue dots. The leaves have been stamped using the green pad from Misty Meadow. Punch a tag & print the sentiment in yellow & attach to the bow using narrow ribbon of the same colour. Happy spring!
