Blooming with Love

This little card came together so quick and easy yesterday. I started with some yet-to-be-cut-into Pretty Please paper by My Mind's Eye. Then I thought this stamped image (from Wish RAK) that was laying on my desk would be a nice match. So I colored it up with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol (odorless mineral spirits). Then I cut it with my new Labels Four dies. (I am so excited about finally getting these dies!) And sponged with soft sky, close to cocoa, and creamy caramel, keeping the die in place as a stencil. What's In It?
