Rockin' Ink Starts - "Spring Has Sprung" Blog Hop

This is the least expensive bouquet of flowers I have ever had and much more beautiful, don't you think?!  It cost me less than $5 to create and I am thoroughly pleased with the results!  Now...to figure out where I want to put it.  Home office?  Work office?  
I used a "glass" bought at the Dollar Tree ($1), wooden rods bought at Walmart (package for $0.72), green grass also from Walmart (less than $1) and then White Daisy Cardstock, different colors of ink, a stamp set and various types of bling that I had on-hand.  I used this tried and true stamp set called "Hooray Bouquet" to create the various flowers.  To make the flowers, I folded some Pear cardstock in half, passed it through a paper crimper at an angle and then cut them by hand.  They are leaves so they don't have to perfect.
Here is a close-up of the flowers:
I had fun making this fun spring creation and hope you like it!  Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think of it.  Then, move on to Joy's Blog to see what fun artwork she has in store for you.

Happy hoppin'!
