OWH Midweek Throwdown Spring Flowers

My resolution this year is enter a card into all the Operation Write Home challenges!  Here is my first entry for the year, the Midweek Throwdown.  To top it off I am using something new (a stamp I have had for a while and had not inked up yet).  Let the cardmaking begin!

The stamp is from Penny Black "Mixed Media".  I stamped it on Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper so all the fine detail in the stamp shows up beautifully.  The background paper is K&Company "Life's Little Occasions Neutral Designer Paper pad".  I used Operation Write Home's Sketch #1 as my guide.

I am also entering this in the Just For Fun Challenges "New." and the
Simon Says Stamp "New Something" challenge.

Happy Crafting!
