For my card I used PK-274 and PK-273.  I used versamark and white embossing powder on the black squares and added a punched gingham floral center on 3 of the flowers.  I stamped a 12 petal solid stamp and embossed with white embossing powder.  The Happy Spring sentiment is from PK-263 Springtime Minis.  I used Colorbox chalk ink to stamp the red flowers.  I used PK-531 Simple Sallies face assortment to stamp the flower centers.  Finished the card with some gingham ribbon, of course.  The lady bug is a cute button I found in my stash.  Please check out what my Peachy sisters have created this week.  You will be blown away!  As always I appreciate your stopping by  Here is my card:

Enjoy the day!
Hugs and smiles,
