Be Bold. Be Beautiful

Happy New Year Crafters.
I hope you've all had a lovely holiday time with friends and family.
Here is my first card of the year. I've gone for something bright and bold.

The budget will be tight again this year, so that means revisiting some of my less used stash. This bloom die is a good example. I'm not great with flowers anyway, but this is also one of those stamps that I just can't get to give a crisp, clean image, no matter what I try. Learning to live with it not being perfect is a challenge for me :o)

Color Hues
