I got out an old and rarely used stamp set for this card - but Ranunculus relate to Spring so the stamp set got an airing as hopefully Spring IS just round the corner. They are gorgeous blooms in real life and I love the upright stems and pretty flower heads.
I opted for a CAS card as I didn't want to detract from the flowers.
I still have the eebie jeebies when stamping direct onto card - this one only took 2 attempts and then as you can see I ended up making one layer into a couple anyway!
After stamping I coloured with Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry for the flower heads and Mowed Lawn for the leaves. Mounted onto a coordinating pink card before wrapping round the pink grossgrain ribbon, then layered onto the base card.
I added a couple of pink sparklies (as a girl has to have a bit of bling somewhere....)
Finished with the sentiment - which I think rates amongst one of my faves.
