CYS: Amazing You!

Good morning, friends!

  It's the 28th of the month ~
 the day the Challenge Your Stash friends post our cards with a chosen theme.
This month's theme is from our hostess, Terry L:
 "Use your favorite floral stamp."

Confession .... shhhh!
I don't have a favorite!
I did, however, finally ink up a floral stamp set that I LOVE ♥
I took advantage of Altenew's free shipping and sale awhile ago
and scooped up two of the stamp sets: Amazing You and A Splash of Color
I'm glad I finally got to pull them out and ink them up,
gently nudged from Terry's floral theme!

I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE art fan ~
 especially the works of impressionist Monet and post-impressionist Seurat.
I think that's why I was drawn to the watercolor/splotchy look. 

My card is inspired by one I saw somewhere on Pinterest ...
I couldn't find the original poster again (as soon as I do, I'll link it up!)
Her card inspired me to mix both of these stamps to create a very 'artsy' look.
It was a bit of a labor of love but so. much. fun!
So I made 3!

 My oldest daughter LOVES Alice in Wonderland and said it reminded her
of the playing cards (guards) running around painting the roses red!
The background for this one is a ruby red/dark pink.

 Here is another flower in the stamp set, and the card base in yellow.

I'll add this pink card to the Altenew inspiration challenge :)

Thank you, Terry, for your wonderful floral theme!
Your CYS nudged me to get these out and finally ink them up ~
no longer sitting in my *please use me bin!*

May your day bloom with wonder,
and remember,
 you are amazing!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
