Sweet Stamps Challenge 5/14 SPRING

Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is to make a SPRING card!  What says SPRING better than Flowers?
 Wahoo- I was in a colorful mood!  And a sparkly mood too : )  I used a Technique Junkies technique called Textured Bounty- ohhh Sparkle a plenty!!!
  On the background, I used Creative Inspirations Paints. The flowers are a new die- the oval is the frame around the flowers- they reminded me of Stained Glass. I cut the die on double sided sticky tape which was attached to plain white cardstock, then added Microfine glitter and colored the flowers and background with Copics.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Just for You Sentiment HERE
Flower Oval Sweet Cuts die HERE
Creative Inspirations Paint- Buttercup, Sage and Plum HERE
Glitz Microfine Glitter HERE
Copic Marker BG11, Sunshine Set and Victorian Green Set HERE
Shades Die Ink HERE 
Swirls Embossing Folder HERE
Coordinations cardstock HERE 
Silver Rhinestones- colored with Y15 Copic HERE
Super Sticky Tape HERE

Double Line Tape HERE

So pretty, I am going to have to try these new techniques! At first I thought the flowers were embroidered. =) I really like all the colors you used in the background, they remind of the fall (we don't get to experience the foliage where I live now) my favorite season!

Thank you for joining us at Get Inky! Challenge.
