Spring Cleaning

I know it's not even close to Spring around here, but I have been doing some cleaning lately!  Thanks to Pinterest, I have found all kinds of cleaning tips and solutions to make. And instead of JUST pinning them, like I usually do, I have actually been trying them out!  Cleaning takes a lot of time though so I haven't had much time to craft!  I want to keep my blog somewhat current though so I did something simple for today. :) I have used the challenges at Dynamic Duos and retro sketches for my card today.
I really liked Crisp Cantaloupe when it was first revealed as a new In Color, but I haven't really used it so this was somewhat of a challenge for me!  
As you can see, I've done some more stamping with my blocks!  This time I started with stamping full strength at the bottom in Calypso Coral and then continued stamping off three more times. Then I started there in the center with Crisp Cantaloupe and stamped it off three more times as well. This is a SUPER easy way to make a color blocked background!  My flower is just three sizes of circle punches that are snipped and layered. I wanted a little bit of dimension to it since my card was so simple.
