CDS April Blog Hop

Hello, hello!  Welcome to the Clear Dollar Stamps April Blog Hop themed:

Earth laughs in flowers -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you just happened upon my blog, you're going to want to head back to Lori's blog to get all the details.  Otherwise, you should have come from Stacy's blog.  I used a new sentiment stamp from CDS: Thanks for helping me bloom.  CDS has a ton of different flower sets that this would work so beautifully with, but I decided to use my Blooming Bouquet Die from CDS and some felt to create some dimension.  I colored my buttons with my airbrush and my Y17 Copic marker.
 Stamps:  Thanks for helping me bloom (sentiment)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Paper:  buttercream, CDS Bee Pollen, CC Salt Air, SU Real Red
Copics:  Y17 & airbrush
Accessories:  buttons, CDS Blooming Bouquet Die, black embossing powder
I'm th end of the hop, so I hope you left comments on each of the participating DT's blogs, because there will be random winners from all the comments.  I hope you found some inspiration today :D
