Papertrey Ink Blog Hop- May

Hello friends,
Today I'm participating in this month's 

Our challenge this month was to show our fav take on flowers. I've got one of my fav ways to incorporate flowers on my card today!

Here's my card:
 I used my fav PTI flower set (In Bloom) in place of the "O" in the word LOVE cuz I love this stamp :)

Here's a closer peek at that:

Here you can see how I stamped it 3 times & layered different parts of it for dimension. 

I cut out the word on my Cricut using the Mother's Day cart. I added some highlights with my white gel pen & popped it up with foam adhesive.

The fun thing about this is that you can add flowers to replace O's in words like in "YOU" or "SORRY" or "MOM"---> you get the picture! It's such a simple thing to do that adds a touch of whimsy to your card!

Thanks so much for peeking & hopping by!
I'm off to get some fab ideas for flowers, flowers, FLOWERS!!!
