Ippity Stamps Blog Hop and The Play Date Cafe

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I think springs warm weather has finally arrived and I can't wait for my plants to start blooming.  I have a quick card to share with you today based on this flower tutorial I ran across the other day. I thought I'd use the colors from The Play Date Cafe to create this card.

I used my favorite Isabelle papers from Anna Griffin for this card and a sentiment from   How You Doin'. Isn't this a cool flower?  I just love the unusual look.  To add some texture I embossed the strips of paper in the center of the card and used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags to stamp the sentiment on.  A small rose, a doily and some rhinestones finished off the card. 

To continue along the blog hop click here.  I'll be gone most of the day visiting the University my youngest son will be attending next year.  He is so excited about this visit and we are so happy for him.  I'll visit all your blogs later today.  In the meantime, enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by.
