Stamp Simply -Mid Winter pick me up

Hi everyone, it time for another Stamp Simply challenge and Spring has sprung! LOL, NO not really, but this week Sharon has challenged everyone to create a project with a floral and springtime colors! You know, kind of a visual break from all the cold.

My card uses some yummy new Melissa Frances pattern paper I just received. I also am experimenting with some more chipboard. This time I inked it up with white craft and when it wouldn't dry (even with the heat gun) I dipped it in white EP and embossed it! LOL! I sponged the edges, added some Kaiser pearls, and tied some of the luscious white 1/4" silk ribbon from Sharon's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

The sentiment panel uses Verve's Wishful Elegance set. I am in desparate need of Birthday cards -so heads up! It's hard to see in the pic, but I stamped the "sunflower-y" blooms randomly in light yellow ink.

Everyone is welcome to play along!! Sharon has Mr. Linky on the challenge post, so be sure to link up your card. And, be sure to use keyword SSNOTIME122 when you upload to SCS. Be sure to stop by the team's blogs to see all their heart cards!
