How do you use a flower stamp?

I so love this set of clear stamps that I got from Avery Elle so of course I try to think of new ways to use the various flowers in the set. 
 I put two of the flowers to use on this card and I knew I wanted to use the wonderful color combo from The Play Date Café.  I had a little bit of trouble finding stamp pads that were the exact colors but I think I came pretty close and I love the result.
 I just kept stamping the larger flower over and over not inking the stamp everytime so some of the shades are a little lighter.  I did a little bit of accent with one of the tiny flowers.  The sentiment is also from Avery Elle.


 Here is the yummy The Play Date Café combo.


It also fits the CASology challenge for the theme of "BLOOM".
And, see what we did this week!! Got some corn planted for the fun of watching it grow.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Ooh, what a fabulous card, Linda! Great color palette, and I LOVE the stamping! Such a gorgeous cascade of flowers. Really love the tiny enameled dots in the center, too.
And how sweet is that photo of the garden?!! Tooooo cute!
