Happiness is rose card made using the March stamp of the month and the Art philosophy cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Can you believe it is the 1st day of March? My goodness spring is on it's way and I couldn't be happier about that!

 Since today is the first of the month, that means there is a new stamp set of the month and this one is one of the best ever! If you have been following this blog for any time at all you know that I LOVE flowers! This stamp set made me squeal when I saw it. If you do not want to be left out on recreating future projects, you need to get this one because I WILL be using this one after March is over. That is not something that I usually do as I know it is frustrating when I post a  project made with something you cannot purchase. I will be doing that with this stamp set.

For this card I used the Art Philosophy cartridge in tandem with the Frame Flair stamp set.  For the background I used a stamp set called In the Background. Chevron patterns are so in right now!

What a beautiful card you truly do flowers like no one else. Your background stamp is awesome you really are a great stamper and there is an art to it and you've mastered it for sure.

I absolutely love this card, and your use of a stamp to create your background is such a great idea. Still trying to master the art of stamping. Any suggestions besides practice, practice, and more practice?
