March Project Parade--Day 3

Hello and good morning!!! Amber here with Day 3 of the March Project Parade, "Fun with Flowers!" If you've been with Verve long, you know that there are TONS of beautiful flower sets that are sure to get you in the Spring mood if you're not already there;)

For my card, I decided to go with a newly released set called "Feel the Sun". I really love the flowers Julee came up with for this set, especially the big rumply one!
These flowers are really easy and fun to color, cut out, and arrange with the leaves! My card base is Vintage Cream, followed by some Sweet Blush and a piece of dp by K&Co. I layered another piece of vintage cream and stamped the sentiment (also from Feel the Sun) in Mushroom ink (Adirondack). I cut all the flowers out and layed them out until they looked right, popped them up with dimensionals and added some buttons and glitter!

I wish I could have captured how sparkly this card is IRL. The Sweet Blush panel (stamped with the polkas from Bountiful Backgrounds) was spritzed with Cookie Glimmer Mist and it's really sparkly! I shot it with my heat gun to shorten the drying time, but it really doesn't take long w/out the heat either.

So what have you thought about the projects so far? Wicked awesome, right? Well there are TONS more ideas coming your way throughout the week and into next week! We'd love for you to play along with us in our Fun with Flowers Project Parade this month as well!
As with all of our Project Parades, we've got prizes! There are two ways to win:

1. Link up your new creation (posted March 22 or later) to the Mr. Linky widget on Jen's Post before Midnight on April 8th
2. One lucky stamper will win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store.
3. Be sure to leave the Diva's a little shout out in the comments as we parade our creations inspired by this month's theme. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (March 22 - April 7) will win his/her choice of any Verve stamp set!
