CFC50 - April Showers Bring May Flowers!

The current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is April Showers Bring May Flowers:

I've had this Memory Box Gorgeous Bloom stamp (E1760) for awhile and decided it was high time to ink it up!



Did a little partial debossing at the top of the stamped panel with a Lifestyle Craft's embossing folder (another technique I learned in the on-line class A Cut Above).  After stamping the bloom with Stampin' Up old olive ink I also embossed it on Hero Arts Iris layering paper and created a layered flower with foam tape.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts CL498 Celebrate Everyday. 
Other Materials Used:  Hero Arts Floral Dot CH267 (flower center), Stampin' Up cs and ink, Papertrey ink pp, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder, Martha Stewart score board

I apologize for the dark pic - the sun decided to suddenly disappear :(  Thanks for all your comments!!

Beautiful Mother's Day card as well. That flower is unique and I really like the way you've layered it for dimension!

I love purple and green together, and also love the way you've stamped that pretty flower, Robin! Wonderful card! :)

So pretty, Robin! Love the way you have just the one colored flower. The patterned paper and strip of debossing offset each other so nicely! You are learning some great tips in the class.

Hi Robin this is soo pretty! I love that flower! And so love your card design! Did you know that if you load your card first to picassa you can "fix it" I can't think of the word! Than you load it to blogger the same it says on the side from picassa! I just started to do that!
