Pile It On! Challenge - Floral Fantasy

This week's Pile It On! Challenge theme is a nice and easy one:

'Floral Fantasy'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty City:
Prize - a 15% off coupon code for the lucky winner!

I thought that the floral theme would be perfect for the Mother's Day card to send to my Mum. I used a favourite stamp of mine...'Blooming Meadows' by Hero Arts...which I stamped using the watercolour technique and Distress Inks. I stamped it a few times to stretch across the front of the card, then added a sentiment (from the Hero Arts 'Sentiments' set) and doodled a simple border.


Here are the challenges I piled on:

This is such a GREAT CAS spring card!!! Your stamping technique is just PERFECT . . . and such a GREAT idea stamping more than once to stretch across your card. It really does look like one stamp . . . and like I am in a bed of wildflowers. Just PERFECT!!! Thanks for joining us over at Hiding In My Craft Room for our "freestyle" challenge! Hope to see you next time! (and GOOD LUCK!!!)
