Simple Spring card....


There are a lot of 'Spring/Easter' challenges at the moment so I thought I'd have a go at a CAS (clean & simple) Spring card :)
I have used a very old Penny Black stamp from 1999!! called Blossom Circle 1418K and stamped it in SU Sage Shadow ink adding a little water to add to the watercolour effect.
I have also added a little Regal Rose ink to the tiny flowers with a waterbrush.....then I got busy with my tiny flower punches to add more flowers to the image...finishing with pearl centres :)
{The yellow flowers are a lot paler IRL!! I cant seem to get a good photo}
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges ~

Penny Black at Allsorts Feb. Challenge - Say it with Flowers...2nd entry
Less Is More #3 - Spring....I've been wanting to enter this new challenge since the start!! finally got there!
Incy Wincy #82 - Use punches or dies
Oldie but a Goodie #13 - Spring is in the Air
& finally.....
The challenge over on the Penny Black Inc. blog is 'Easter cards', I think this would be suitable to send 'Easter Wishes' to someone special :)

Thanks for looking xx
