Flower Fair for FMS

Today began chilly and foggy but eventually blossomed into a gorgeous sunny Spring day! I do love Spring - it's like a sneak peek of summer :-)
And when I saw the great sketch by Cindy at Freshly Made Sketches this week I knew which stamp set I wanted to use. Here is the sketch:

And eventually I decided on this colour scheme for a friend whose favourite colour is "purple" followed by pink :-)

So the card base is Blackberry Bliss to match the piece of DSP used across the card.  The flower images are from the wonderful Flower Patch stamp set that are so easy to cut with their matching framelits and are layered on dimensionals.

Card stock: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Moonlight Stack
Inks: Lost Lagoon, Strawberry Slush, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizazz
Stamps: Flower Patch, Four You
Accessories: Big Shot, Flower Fair Framelits, Hexagon EF, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have time to go and check out all the great inspiration at Freshly Made Sketches this week and maybe you too might be inspired to join in the fun!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. The flowers really pop against the white space! Pretty card! Thanks forjoining us at FMS!

  2. Gorgeous flower, Jan!!! It's lovely how the embossing folder echoes the dsp! - Katerina

    1. Thanks very much Katerina! This card was a little tricky with the added favourite colours of pink and purple on top of the sketch too :-)

  3. Beautiful card Jan! I love those flowers! So cheery! Love the embossed background! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Absolutely beautiful Jan! Love the combo of colours you've used for your flower! Like Katerina I love how you've matched your DSP and embossed background. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
