Celebrate Today

I am back with my favorite bouquet of flowers from the February Stamp of the Month, Cherishing Her! I picked my color scheme from the colorful Celebrate Today Paper Collection.  I know I will be creating quite a few cards with the bright colors featured in the pack.  Here is a look at the complete pack-

I stamped my image with Intense Black Ink.  I then colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, blended out with Gamsol.  My colors came direct from the floral print in the paper pack. My image was then fussy cut and mounted with 3-D Foam tape for added dimension.

My card is based on the sketch challenge at MFT Stamps.  My white panel was die cut with an MFT border die and applied onto the Celebrate Today pattern paper.  Super simple card with a great pop of color.  Here is the original sketch design-

All of my images are from the February Stamp of the Month, Cherishing Her.  This super versatile set can be added to a qualifying order for only $5!  This set is only available in the month of February. Here is a look at the complete set-
