When I think Spring, I think flowers, so today I'm showcasing 3 different cards and looks using a fabulous flower set from the Occasions Mini. Enjoy!

DEEsign 1: Bright Spring Card

DEEtails: I stamped the petals with Daffodil Delight on Whisper White card stock. I don't have the coordinating punch, so I simply cut the petals out by hand. Then I ahdered them to a 3/4" circle covered with a large glue dot. Then I added a 5/8" brad in Chocolate Chip to the center of the flower. I adhered my flower to some Pretty in Pink card stock, which I layered onto my card that I embellished with some Daffodil Delight ric rac, cut from the Tasteful Trim die.

DEEsign 2: Sweet Spring Card

DEEtails: For my second card, I stamped my petals in Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. This time, I added some Going Gray Designer Buttons. I tied a Whisper White Satin boaw around my Going Gray card stock, matted with some Whisper White. Then I added my flowers and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card.

DEEsign 3: Natural Spring Card

DEEtails: For my final card, I decided to do something a little different with my petals. I inked the petals with VersaMark and embossed my petals. I assembled the flower, then cut it down to size. Then I stamped a Pear Pizzazz center and folded it over the edge. I added some Scallop Edge trim with some Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding ribbon to a Crumb Cake card and added my flower.
