WMS April Blog Party...Spring Flowers

This is my 2nd post for today...for my Day 3 Release Previews just scroll down

Good afternoon!
Enjoying all the gorgeous inspiration for the 3 new Watzingmouse sets releasing tomorrow?
How about just a little more because it's the 17th and you know what that means...
my favorite day of the month!
This month the theme is SPRING FLOWERS...
appropriate since spring has sprung and everything is in full bloom around here...
especially my allergies...
and since there are so many stops to make along the way I'm going to get straight to it...

WMS April Blog Party

I used the fabulous harlequin stamp from Heirloom Patterns to stamp a background and then cut it down a bit to layer onto an A2 cardbase.  
Once I had cut it down...I sliced it and then adhered onto the card with the white space in the middle for a sentiment...
which I stamped directly onto the base while popping the background on dimensional dots.
I cut and colored those gorgeous blooms from Camellia and adhered them with some pop dots and glue...
and the sentiment is from Roses in Bloom...
thought this might be a good time to make a Mother's Day card because it's fast approaching which means that I am now officially ahead...
That never happens! *giggle*
Though I didn't use any here because I decided to hoard a little longer...
all my colors were inspired by Fancy Pants new collection...Trendsetter...
I love this collection!!
Navy, coral and aqua...
how could I not?
They had me at navy!

So this Party goes on for 24 hours...
plenty of time to whip up a project if you haven't already...
and you can get all the details on Claire's blog HERE.
I'll see you along the way!
