French Flower Cart.....

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone: Finally!!! Spring is Here!! (Hopefully to stay) and since after the April Showers come May Flowers here's the theme and inspiration photo over at RETRO RUBBER for you to play with this time.
My card is from "I Brake for Stamps" and it's called French Flower Cart, I love the beautiful flower pots and the fresh flowers in them. The cart with its umbrella is just so sweet.
This stamp dates back to 2015, I'm so happy I wrote the year when I bought it in the back of the plain rubber stamp.

I stamped this image on some watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers and Sakura Koy watercolors. The ribbon and twine are from my stash.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Tulips for Friends"(bought it when it came out in 2013, discontinued) and the border on the top is from a retired SU set called "Bordering Blooms" from the 2014-2015 SU annual catalog.

I hope you get inspired to come and play with us at RETRO RUBBER, please don't forget to use at least ONE STAMP THAT IS OLDER THAN ONE YEAR and let us know how old is it, ok? 
Also, visit my teammates' blogs for more awesome inspiration.

I would like to play along with the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.
