PSA Flowers

I went a really simple route with this card inspired by this photo on the PSA Stamp Camp blog.

The colors in the card mimic the colors in the bouquet, and I thought the background paper tied in nicely for a springy card full of flowers. The stamped bouquet and the heart ring around the circle are in the PSA Originals stamp set Mr. and Mrs.

I have been using my new dies a lot, and on this card I wanted to layer them to look like a flower. The center portion of the flower was represented with the pink and then the yellow layer was to represent the petals. It look awkward all by itself though, so I added in the other layer to balance out the design and anchored it with brads to make it more cohesive. The layout and design was inspired by this card.

I love that this stamp set doesn't have to just be for wedding cards. With the flower bouquet stamp and the flower paper it translates itself into any category. I think I'll send this one to Jake's Grandma, it just reminds me of her and I know she'll love getting some "flowers" in the middle of winter! ;)

If you haven't already, make sure to stop by the PSA Stamp Camp blog, and check out some of the great inspiration they've had going on!
