Hi everyone.   It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge at Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps.

Simple Salutations Challenge #60 is to create with girl things.  What girl does not love flowers?  I know I do and I don't get them often enough.  So I used the new Huge Blooms stamp set and created a 4" x 4" card to show off how beautiful this stamp is.

I stamped the Bloom with Clearsnap Purple Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  Then, I used Smooch Accent Inks in Orchid Frost and Illuminate to color the flowers.  Orchid Frost was placed on the tips of the flowers and the centers, then I used Illuminate to draw the color out to the petals, creating a shimmery dual toned flower.

Don't forget to enter your card here  for a chance to win some stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today.
