The Card Concept Challenge # 174- How does Your Garden Grow

Welcome my stampy friends!
I hope y'all are having a wonderful spring so far!
I am here today to share my card that I created for our new challenge starting today at 

Pretty soon we will begin seeing beautiful flowers just like our photo inspiration:

I was inspired by the gorgeous colors of the flowers in the photo to create my 
Clean & Layered style card.

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

I started my card by using a stencil and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink to add some interest to the background!

I had just received some new dies from Brutus Monroe that I wanted to try! These dies make beautiful flowers and leaves!
The sentiment is from a new stamp and matching die set from Simon Says Stamps!

I just love the way this card turned out!!!

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
I love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
