It’s been very gray, cold and damp around here. Winter is setting in. So I was in the mood for flowers and color today. Here is a set of three cheerful cards that I made with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, In Color Bitty Bows and Glitter Enamel Dots.
This is a card that for sure would brighten anyone’s day. Here is what you need if you wish to recreate it. (Supplies are also at the bottom listed visually and linked to my online store.)
