A new set arrived in my delivery box today (long story, but yes I do have a box on my porch for deliveries!). FREE from Stampin' Up!® for Consistency Counts 1st Quarter is the Blossoms Abound set! I've admired this set from afar since it's preview last year. I decided it was time to give it a whirl!

Colors are Lovely Lilac and Glorious Green. Lovely Lilac is an OLD favorite of mine which I haven't use much recently. Purple is a favorite of mine though, so I still fall back on it now and then! Background is the Fine Lace. White grosgrain is daubered with a little Lovely Lilac. The white layer is Shimmery White. Scans never do this CS justice, but it's AWESOME in person.

Hope you've all had a great Monday! Spring seems to have returned to Nebraska. This card was actually created in memory of my Lilacs which I don't think will bloom this year. 80 degree temps for a couple weeks, followed by over a week with lows in the teens does not do well for plants that bloom! Trees and such seem to be re-budding (is that a word?), but I think my Lilac shrubs will just be pretty green bushes this year!, once they leaf out again!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by!

OOOHHH, very pretty indeed! I'm not sure my lilacs made it either, I looked at them today and there's a chance! I was so excited! The card is great, love the beautiful colors. And you are right, shimmery white rocks!!! :)

how did you do the main stamp so some of it is lighter? it looks really pretty. :) reminds me of a Wisteria card i saw while i was surfing through some of the 'tagged' links.
