Spring Blossoms Flourish

Hi everyone!

I must say, I am really enjoying my new stamps from Flourishes.  I have always preferred clear over wooden stamps, and Flourishes are awesome!  They stay put on the glass block, the ink goes on well, and the details are amazing!
You should play along with this week's challenge at Flourishes, it is according to your birth-month.  Mine is use 2 patterned papers and a flower stamp.

For today's card, I used this image from their "Spring Blossom" set with a special someone in mind for her upcoming birthday.
I inked it up with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored it in with my CTMH Markers, Prisma Watercolor Pencils and blended.  I cut the image into a circle (yep, by hand...I don't own a circle-cutter), did some paper-piercing around the edges, outlined with a glitter-pen and popped it up using foam-adhesives.

Thanks for stopping by today!
