Bloom With Hope - CCMC307

I just realized how many of the new stamp sets have the word Bloom in their name... Seems like almost every stamp set I use does :)
I had most of my card for this week's sketch challenge at Create With Connie and Mary done pretty quickly and then I sat at my desk for at least 30 minutes trying out different combinations or buttons and punched images to use where the 2 little flowers are in the sketch. In the end, I decided to use the recently retired :( large rhinestones, which I colored with my Coastal Cabana Blendabilities marker and attached to the Basic Metal Buttons. Still not sure how I feel about them but I give up! :)

Recipe (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps: Bloom With Hope

Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento; Old Olive, Daffodil Delight & Coastal Cabana Blendabilities

Paper: Basic Grey, Whisper White card stock; Moonlight DSP stack; All Abloom DSP stack
