I'm a Newton's Nook Guest Designer! ♥

Happy Friday, friends!
I'm tickled pink to have been invited by Jennifer, owner of Newton's Nook Designs, to be a Guest Designer for the month of May :)
 I can finally let the "cat" out of the bag - hee hee!
  Not only is Newton the cutest little kitty on the web
 (he really is!  Take a look!)
but Newton's Nook stamps are just as fun, whimsical and amazing as well! 
 I look forward to a month of challenges, new stamp release and lots of stamping time ♥

There is a fabulous challenge right now at the NN blog which is
a color challenge ~ Here is the gorgeous color scheme they've chosen.
Pretty, right!
I wanted to jump on in and play along!


Can I just tell you, Newton's Nooks stamps are so crisp and clear
first time inking them up with such a beautiful imprint.
For this card, though, I wanted to use a flower so I scooped
up the freebie.
I also used the card sketch from Cardabilities #98 after
spying it on their blog and drooling (I'll be using sketch again!)

I printed out the bloom flower twice and propped it up
on 3d dots after cutting out the image.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
