Friends are treasures

Hi everyone.  It's snowing again here and I am so wishing for spring.  It's been months since we've seen the sun so I thought I'd help move it along by creating a bright, sunny card.
I used several of the new Ann Butler quilting stamps from Unity Stamp Co. - 2" Doily Stamps, and used Ann Butler's new line of ColorBox Crafter's Inks.  I used Aquamarine on white cardstock,  cutting it to size and matting with black cardstock for some pop.
To create the flower,  I stamped 6 blocks of Tangelo and 6 blocks of Sunshine using the same stamp set.  Then I  used a floral die to cut the flowers.  I wasn't very particular where I placed the die, and I  love how the medium flower picked up both colors of ink. 

I molded the flower and then matted it on a black circle before adding it to the card.  The sentiment was stamped on a left over piece of stamped cardstock

Thanks for stopping by today.
