A Breath of Spring

Spring has arrived (sort of!) in the Highlands and the buds are fattening on the trees, I'm really looking forward to see the pretty blossom, it's so late this year.  I decided to make a card with spring blossoms on and this Little Claire stamp seemed to fit the bill.
I coloured the image with Promarkers to match these gorgeous Prima Hello Pastel papers, the colours and designs of this stack are just stunning.  I inked all the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp onto a tag element that I cut out from the paper pack.
The flowers were made with a Woodware punch and I finished my card with assorted pastel pearls, some yellow gems and some grosgrain ribbon and a bow.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sweet Stampin' - Anything But Birthday
Totally Gorjuss - #181 - Ribbon and Pearls

  1. Pretty card, lovely image and the pastel colours are gorgeous, another winner Wendy, love it, Kate x

  2. Spring really is late this year Wendy, it's a good three weeks behind here and still reluctant, last night we had minus 5 again so no wonder things are slow.

    But your pretty card really does have a feel of the season.
