Spring

I'm still celebrating the first days of spring, even if our temperatures are not spring-like.

This week's Friday Sketchers Challenge was the following layout:


I used sweet Tilda from Magnolia Stamps with a bouquet of flowers and added just a touch of lavender Flower Soft to one of her flowers.

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils. The designer paper is from Daisy D's and I paired it with a pale yellow cardstock and stamped a Fine Lace background stamp by Stampin' Up! and used Tim Holtz distress ink to make it appear to coordinate with the Daisy D paper.

I used a lot of punches for this card including a Martha Stewart lace border punch, Martha Stewart leaf punch, Stampin' Up! ticket punch, oval punch and ribbon threader punch.

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend. I will be spending the bulk of my weekend doing some much needed spring cleaning.

Cheers!
