A Flower for Every Season ~ Monday Montage

Welcome to an all new Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won't want to miss a single creation from this amazing group of stampers!
I hope everyone had a safe and Happy 4th of July weekend!  Ours was pretty mellow and low key this year (thanks COVID!) but we all agreed that it was kind of nice.  I was all for mellow and low key after nursing a sick doggie all week.  Our sweet Holly dog developed some sort of GI issue early last week and her recovery has been a very slow and draining process.  I have a feeling we will be back at with the vet with her tomorrow because she is still not eating.  Say a little prayer for my sweet girl.
I started working on these cards last week in an effort to stay busy while I waited to hear back from the vet.  I was finally able to finished them up today, just in time for this weeks Monday Montage Blog Hop!
Inspired by the latest Fab Friday Challenge, I pulled out the cheerful Flowers for Every Season DSP.
I love me some sunflowers, so this pattern was a must use for me!  I paired Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set with this summery-fun DSP for a quick and easy celebration card.  I stamped the sunflower in Soft Suede, then added color with the Stampin' Blends...kind of like a no-line watercolor, but with the blends!  
True to it's word, there REALLY is a flower for every season in the beautiful package of DSP!  The poinsettia's are so pretty and paired up perfect with the holly from Christmas Gleaming stamp set. Again, I stamped the holly in Sahara Sand, then added color with the Stampin' Blends.
The Just Jade Gingham Ribbon was used for the fun scalloped edge in the sketch.  This ribbon works for every season as well!

Paper ~ Bumble Bee, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Flowers for Every Season
