Paper Quilters Spring Card Challenge


I decided to take on Ethel's challenge and create a spring card. The most diffcult part of this challenge for me was deciding which of my flower stamps I wanted to use. With all the snow we had last weekend I am so ready for SPRING! I just started stamping various flowers in different color inks until I came up with this color combo which is different colors then I am use to using. The bottom panel of the card I created by running the matching ink pad on an angle acrossed the sheet of paper then reversing and running in the oppsite direction. I think it made for a nice effect. Basically to create I just stamped flowers and layered on lighter matching violet and rose cardstock. I hope it's a winner because I have no Magnolia Stamps and the Tilda stamp being offered is so cute!
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my touch of spring I bring you today:)
