Spring Flowers

For today I am entering Cards in EnvyRetro Rubber Challenge, and Inspired by the Little Things. Here is my card for today, enjoy!!

The shabby background was done by lightly stamping a wood grain pattern on aqua cardstock. I then layered aqua acrylic paint with a dry brush on the card.
The color theme for this card was unusually wonderful.
The garden flowers were stamped, painted, and then fussy cut.
This set is a retired set from SU called Fabulous Florets
 I feel that it turned out very well and am happy with the result.

Challenges Entered:
Retro Rubber Challenge: #62- Theme Challenge #rrcb62
The Fabulous Florets stamp set was released in 2011. I got my crafty hands on it in 2014.

Gorgeous use of the Fabulous Florets flowers. They really sparkle on the vintage aqua background. Love that you added acrylic paint... gives more texture.
