Sentimental Sundays #3

Wow, where do the weekends slip away to? Well here is a fun point to add to your week, a new challenge with Sentimental Sundays. Be sure to stop by the blog and see the fun creations by the rest of the design team!  This is challenge #3, and the theme is:
New Beginnings

I've used one of Ann's lovely sentiments from a Celebration set. I was thinking of new relationships, the similarities and differences that bring people together, and of the variety in the beautiful new flowers of Spring.  The flowers are stamped from a Basic Grey set.


You must use a sentiment somewhere on your card, and follow the theme however you may interpret it, in order to enter the challenge. While Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) offers fabulous freebies, and also sells a wide variety of sentiment stamps through Whimsy Stamps, you are free to use any sentiment you choose (from any company, one of your own, etc). Be sure to link up on the Sentimental Sundays blog before the next challenge, and use a direct link to make it easy for us to find your fabulous card or project!

I'm entering this card into these challenges as well:
I Love Digi #7: Charming
Clean and Simple #90: Sketch (their sketches are really helping me clean up cards!)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 83: Metal (Charm)
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges #23: Metal Mania (Charm)
ColourQ Challenge #32: Kiwi Kiss, Groovy Guava, Kraft, Basic Black, Vanilla
Oh La La Creations Challenges #53:  Minimalist
