Dreaming of Flowers...

Good afternoon!  I hope you had a great weekend! Sorry for the delay in my post, I had all my pictures taken to finish my post last night, but forgot me camera by my parents!  So I was unable to finish it until now.

Although I love this time of year in Wisconsin, as I have time off with the kids, there comes a point where being in the house every day because it is too cold to take them outside begins to get a little old.  As of late, I have been starting to dream of warmer weather and being able to work in my flower beds and client flower beds.

So this card was inspired by flowers!  I had so much fun making these flowers from scratch!  Although it takes a little bit to make, I think they turned out so nice and look like I bought them! For more info on how I made the flowers, you can check my blog.

"Chocolate" and "Turquoise" were used to add shimmer to the flowers!

I also was inspired by Kassi's tutorial on Saturday! (Thanks!)  I had gotten the Dabbing Brush from Inkadinkado last month and played with it and the paints a little bit, but then kind of forgot about it! I love how it easily added paint to my embossed paper.
I used "Ivory" to add some yummy shimmer to the swirls!

Hope you have a wonderful week!!
