I created a card using Blossoming Buds, which is a stellar floral set that’s unlike anything else in the Paper Smooches line. It’s fantastic. I chose to paper piece my focal point, but you could also color it with markers, pencils or emboss it! I added some subtle stamping around the edges to add some texture.  



Thanks so much for hopping along with us!
