Challenge: Pretty Petals

The sun has been shining, the ground is warming up and everything is in bloom. So to celebrate this gorgeous time of year we're going to go mad for flowers for our next challenge! So let's see those flowers on your projects peeps! Any colour or variety, the choice is yours!

For my sample I dug out (bad pun, sorry!) my Green Thumb set. This was one of my first ever PTI sets, bought about three years ago, but hasn't seen much ink lately! That's changed though as I had a good play with it over the weekend!

Stamps - Green Thumb
Card - Stamper's Select White/True Black/Spring Moss
Ink - Summer Sunrise/Melon Berry/Orange Zest/Terracotta Tile/Spring Rain/Antique Linen Distress Ink
Other - True Black gingham ribbon/Spring Moss button

Here's Aimes:

"Well I bet you were expecting me to ink up Friends 'til the End for this challenge were you not?! LOL! Well in a bid to escape my urge to ink it up all the time I fancied surprising both you and myself by having a go at making my own flower!"

"Super easy to make with lots of die-cut flowers from tissue paper! Just proves that you don't need a stamp set that features a flower to enter our challenge ;D"
