Fresh Flowers Just For You

Sweet Spring is one of my favourite stamp sets. 
I love the little butterflies and dotted trail lines and often use them in scenes, like a recent card I made here. There are also several cute floral groupings that can be used in so many ways.
This card would suit a variety of different occasions ..... birthday, thank-you or a note card. The card base was stamped with Off Beat Backgrounds (Waltzingmouse Stamps) using Fine Linen ink, to create a plaid design and then impressed with the Canvas Impression Plate.

The flowers and butterfly were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with copic markers. I  also added the grass using copic markers. A stencil brush was used to dab blue ink across the top of the white card stock. 
The sentiment (Petite Places: Main Street) was the perfect size for the top corner. It was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangles were used to cut the main focal panel and a Fine Linen mat. The edges of the Finen Linen mat and the card base were sponged with Fine Linen ink.
A Berry Sorbet banner peeks out from the side of the floral panel. A little green flower brad was added to the banner.
