May Flowers

Meet today's card.
Nature is coming alive and I wanted to make a very clean and fresh card and here's what I came up with. 
I began by die cutting a circle from lightweight paper and used the negative part as a mask for the circle.  I sponged on green Distress ink on the bottom and blue at the top.
Leaving the mask in place, I put the piece inside my Misti and stamped a portion of the flowers at at bottom using black ink.  I removed the mask and stamped the whole flower again just to the side of the circle.
The sentiment is from a new PB set called Happy Times.
I removed the mask and doodled in a border using a fine line black marker.

Adding my card to these challenges:

I love the fresh look of the Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers ink and the clover silhouette goes beautifully, and the sentiment and the sweet doodling round the edge are great as finishing touches. x
