Spring is in the air!

So sorry to be late posting my card today, I just can't seem to get going in the mornings ... or the afternoons! We have a spring theme for our next challenge on the Oldie but a Goodie blog - I just hope it triggers some sunshine and flowers in my garden. Our very own Fleur is giving a fabulous prize and we are also looking for a guest designer to join us in April - but remember, no digi images and your stamp must be at least 6 months old.

I've inked up Ruffles by Helz Cuppleditch for Stampavie and coloured with Copics then put this simple card together with bits and pieces from my stash. The flowers and swirls are Marianne die cuts, the leaves are punched and the pearls are made with my Waco pearl pen.
Copic pens used:
Ruffles - E50, 51, 53, 55
chicks - Y21, YR23, 24
greens - YG91, 93, 95, 97
flowers - YR000, 00, 02
sky - B60

I've inked the edges of my papers with Malted Mauve Versamagic chalk ink as well as adding pricked faux stitches then matting with Rose Embroidery Coredinations cardstock.

Charisma Cardz also have a spring theme challenge and Incy Wincy Designs are looking for punches and dies on your creations. I'm going to have a bit of a rest day today, so will be back to catch up with you all later on. Thanks so much for stopping by, I really love to read your comments.

  16. Love your grass & the fur on Ruffles. Those narcissi are really effective in those colours - nice to see them rather than daffodils & I do like how you've tied the colours in with your layered flowers. Hope you have a good rest. I really don't do mornings at all.
