Another week over....only one week left of February...then we can really start thinking of spring! I'm sooo looking forward to better weather and more daylight and sunshine and flowers and getting out in the garden! There are signs already, lots of buds on the trees and shrubs, crocuses snowdrops and daffs starting to sprout! Our challenge theme at Sweet Stampin' this week is a very apt one - Spring Flowers - my favourites! I absolutely love their bright bold colours as they bravely bloom, sometimes in the freezing cold, banishing the dull miserable end-of-winter days!
For my card I die cut a card blank using a large tag die, then covered it with dp. I coloured a gorgeous Mo Manning image, a lovely little girl selling her gorgeous tulips with copics, then die cut using a stitched circle die, which I layered over another die cut tag. I added the three die cut tulips, which I shaded slightly to add dimension. A tiny tag stamped and doodled around the edges was tucked behind the image. I added a ribbon and lace border and a ribbon and twine bow to finish.
The lovely ladies at Sweet Stampin' would love to see lots and lots of spring flowers this week, so hop on over here to join us! There's a fabulous prize from Petal Lu for this week's lucky winner!
