Blooming Love!

Good morning all

I'm here today with my inspiration card for Whimsy Stamps.  I've used not one but two of the cute January release digis from Stampart Design by Kathryne
 together with a bonus sentiment that comes with it.

The main image is called Katie available here
The pink flowers are cut from Pretty Petals 2 available here
and the sentiment comes as a bonus with the Pretty Petals 2 stamp 

The flowers in the bottom corner are cut from the pretty Petals 2 digi - I coloured them then cut them out and mounted them on 3D foam before arranging them on the die cut leaves as an embellishment to match the flower on the image.  I really like these little flowers and I think they could be used to make all sorts of flower embellishments as there is an assortment of shapes and sizes of flower.  The centre of each flower is coloured and then I added diamond stickles which really makes these flowers stand out.   The design paper I used is first edition spring drop - the colours in it are green, pink, peach and aqua and I used those colours for my image - the aqua doesn't show up to well on the photo which makes the colours look a bit random - its better in real life  honest!

This is what I did....
