Kitchen Sink Stamps - Yellow Hydrangea

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by today!  I think Mother Nature is playing some cruel tricks with out weather!  Yesterday it felt like mid summer with the temps here in the mid 80's, and to think we were just at 40 last week!

With the warmer weather all of the trees and landscaping has finally started to open.  Well, I shouldn't say all, the darn rabbits really did a number on quite a few of our bushes this year!  Some they chewed nearly down to the ground!  So, with the warmer weather, I went with a Flowery Spring card using a combination of Kitchen Sink Stamps.

I had the idea of putting the beautiful 3 Step Hydrangea in the vase from 3 Step Bitty Tulip Bouquet for some time, and finally got around to trying it out.  I searched through my KSS sets to find a stem and settled on the stem from the 3 Step Get Well Teddy set.  I pulled my colors from the beautiful My Minds Eye Stella and Rose Hattie Collection.
