Getting Back on Track!

Morning All,
I have been missing my card making time the past few weeks. I was in Florida during April vacation and did have a few posts prepared but have had zero time once I came home between horses, work and PT sessions. While it was nice to not do very much while in Florida except read I cant believe how many things are now on the "to do" list! Yikes! Well before I plunge into more house cleaning I wanted to share one of my cards for my upcoming May stamp club. I was fresh out of ideas for a layout so I went on over to Stamping 411 Blogspot and as usual they had a great sketch to get me started:

Here is what I came up with:

I am once again having issues with the camera. **Edited with better photo after I borrowed my significant others camera!** For the life of me I cant imagine what went wrong now! Anyway, this was the best of many many shots. I knew I wanted to share the Herb Expressions stamp set with my group as it retiring May 31st! Such a beautiful set! I also wanted one more chance to play with Concord Crush as that In Color will also be retiring. I used the blender pen to get the different shades of Concord Crush on the Flowers and used Pear Pizzazz on the leaves.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love how the center flowers are darker than the others. What a pretty effect!
