Your Next Stamp's Mini Flower Fhiona with Basic Grey's Eco Notes

My next "Spring" card is featuring joyful cheery colours!  

I started with an interest in repeating a design in a rainbow of colours which is how I made the background for this card using the circle-encased flower stamp from BASIC GREY'S ECO-NOTES.

Your Next Stamp’s  MINI FLOWER FHIONA  was fun to colour!  I am using white cardstock I purchased from Flourishes Inc. as it is a great choice for colouring with Copic markers. 

After colouring Fhiona, I cut her out with Spellbinders  BIG SCALLOPED SQUARES and cut a slightly larger red square to layer behind her.

Finally, I couldn’t resist a cheery red button with 2 leaves – must have been thinking about apples – or maybe a cherry? 

Once again, I mounted everything on a crisp, white card base! The card measures 4.5 x 5 inches so I’d need to make my own envelope {if I decide to mail it} – but for me, envelopes are just a side note, I LOVE designing cards without worrying too much about size! 
And I had a lot of fun with this card – hope this one finds a happy home, lol J
