I got this paper pad of English country flowers free with a craft magazine a while ago. I'm not into all things country but the images were beautiful , so kept hold of them.  I had a burst of inspiration on seeing them recently and used them to make these simple cards. They are so cheerful and remind me of  spring/summer in the recent cold weather. The paper was cut and matted and layered on gatefold card blanks. I went over the flowers with some colour pencils to make the colours pop. A simple sentiment attached... easy peasy quick cards. There were enough papers to use them inside the card too!

 I am entering this card in the crafty cardmakers challenge which calls for blooming images.
