Flower power

This past weekend we went to visit my dear grandmother. She is 91 and doesn't feel a day over 60. She always brings a smile to my face she is never afraid to try new things. We took over some sushi and flowers. She liked the sushi and loved the flowers. We also got to see her beautiful flower garden. All of these flowers inspired me to make a simple card to have on hand when a friend needs a little pick me up.

I grabbed a few sets from Inspired Stamps - Flowers (one of my favorites) Comfort and picked out some pretty pinks and some green and got busy coloring and cutting. I adore this quick and easy way that everything just seems to come together. After I colored and cut I popped up the stem and tied a ribbon on it for the leaves. I also popped the flower up and added some stickles to the middle.

Did you notice the long stem? The stem in the flower set is not quite that long so I stamped it twice and that is where the ribbon is tied. Simple solution. I love to keep things simple when I can. :)

I normally make the inside of the card similar to the front but this card just called for a clean simple sentiment also from the Comfort set

I hope you are inspired to make a card, pick some flowers or visit a loved one.
