The Card Concept Challenge #133-Hello Spring!

Welcome my stampy friends!
I hope all of you have been healthy! 
So far my family and friends have been virus free.
And I am so thankful!
Praise God!

I have spending lots of time in my craft room
aka my therapy room! 

We are starting our new challenge today

Nothing says spring better than beautiful flowers!!!
And that is what inspired my Mixed Media style card.

The first thing I did was cut some sheets of Bristol white paper.Then I pulled out my Color Bursts.
They seem to be really on trend right now!
 I had so much fun playing with these Color Bursts! 
So many beautiful colors!

After my papers had dried, I took several different punches and made some flowers and leaves.
I stamped a background on the back panel with some script and pretty leaves in Crumb Cake ink. I attached the flowers to that panel to create a beautiful bouquet ! I added some Nuvo Drops as some extra dimension.

The style of my card would be Mixed Media

2 or more mediums
such as inks, watercolors, stamps,
fabrics, foil.
Anything that adds texture to your project

I hope you will create a card or project using any of the  styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

The Rules:

1.  Use the challenge inspiration to create a card.
2.  Use one of the challenge styles to create a card (or if you prefer, combine a few styles).
3.  Explain in a post which style or combination of styles you used and what inspired you from our photo.  
4.  Link your post using our linky (please link to the actual post on your blog and not just your blog).
