Spring Beauty

Hello Bloggers
Its challenge time again at Stamping With The Dragon Challenge Blog and for my DT card I used the beautiful Spring Beauty digi image

I just love the simplicity of this image and I didn't want to over-do it colour wise so kept it very light and just used my pastel coloured pro markers. I cut the digi out using a scalloped circle nestie and inked the edges with a chalk ink pad so it had a softer look than using a normal ink pad. I made my own card base from white card, rounded the corners and punched little hearts from each corner. I decided to leave to card base plain white and to add some colour I cut some swirls and flourishes from assorted coloured pastel card using 3 different flourish dies, and tucked them behind the digi layer. The sentiment is a little stamp I have had for ages, sorry I cant remember what make it is and I stamped onto white card and then matted it onto a flower die cut which is pale yellow with white polka dots.

I hope you will come on over to the Stamping Dragon challenge blog and join us this week, I look forward to seeing your makes.

Happy Crafting
