A Card to Brighten My Day, and Yours!

We have been getting a lot of rainy and, in my opinion, cold weather, here in the Raleigh area. A lot of rain gives me the blues. Good thing I have stamping to bring me back up! I made a bright, floral card, to lift me out of my blue mood.

 
 Mixed bunch is a floral stamp set that coordinates with the Blossom punch. I don't mind hand cutting, but having a matching punch is awesome! It's perfect every time, and saves on time. Especially if you change your mind about the ink color, which I often do.

 
 The little flowers are from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. My favorite for little accents. I colored rhinestones with Sharpies, for my flower centers. They match pretty close. Right now I'm dreaming of Sharpies in Stampin' Up! colors. Wouldn't that be fabulous?
