Plant Smiles

Hello friends!  Happy Friday!
I've got a card to share with you today and it certainly has put me in the mood for some Spring weather hopefully coming our way soon!  :)

I have used this adorable set from Newton's Nook called Garden Whimsy.  I also wanted to play along in their current challenge using a color combo before it ends.

I did a bit of ink blending within the die cut circle and added the grass blades and flowers.  I've colored in the cute little bear and fussy cut him out and popped him up over the scene so it looks like he's watering the flowers.  I also have a bit of sparkly glitter where the water comes out from the spout.  It's also hard to see on the blue card stock, but I've sponged some clouds with white ink.  The die cut circle scene was popped up over the blue cloud panel with craft foam.

Also added a bit of red with some scallop border die cut edges and then added some white twine.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

**UPCOMING**
Please be sure to come and visit with me all next week as I will be sharing some inspiration with a brand new release coming out for Whimsy Stamps!!  This release is fabulous and I just know you will love it!  Don't miss the fun because there will be lots of fun surprises along the way!! :)
