Good morning all!! I hope this post finds you all well!!  The weather is becoming warmer here during the day.  The grass is green and our tulips look like they are about to open.  The flowering trees are blossoming.  I just love this time of year!!

  Since Spring is now here, this month's challenge at ODBD is Spring has sprung0 create your own flowers with dies.

ODBD Stamps Used: Lovely Flowers
ODBD Dies Used: Lattice BackgroundVintage BordersRoseRose LeavesVintage Flourish PatternLovely LeavesBeautiful Borders, Fancy Fan

I enjoyed creating budding roses using the Rose border die released this past weekend.  The background is created using the Lattice Background Die that is sponged with amethyst.  The frame around the image is created by die cutting the Fancy Fan die and then turning the die upside down, matching the oval on the top with the die and recutting my cardstock creating an ornate oval of sorts.

For more inspiration for this ODBDSLC285 challenge or to link your own creation with die cut flowers, please visit the ODBD blog or my dt sisters:
Robin, Julie, and Diana.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!! They are greatly appreciated.  May God bless you!!
