The pink and green challenge was perfect for these little sweet peas. This is a large stamp and I just used a portion of it. Sweet Peas are also the flower for April. They can be a wide range of colors too, so many coloring combinations to play with. I googled Sweet Peas before coloring them and had no idea they were also used as a goodbye flower. I shared the Farmer's Almanac said about Sweet Peas below. Your fact of the day! =) I used a Marianne Die to create a shaped card base.

THE SWEET PEA

The other April flower is the Sweet Pea. While sweet peas signify blissful pleasure, on the other hand they are also used to say good-bye. Perhaps Shakespeare had sweet peas in mind when he wrote the immortal words: “Parting is such sweet sorrow.”  Then too, there are the good-byes we’re glad of, such as saying so long to flies; these insects find the sweet pea’s fragrance offensive and will leave its environs in a hurry.
