BC91 - Think Spring

How perfect is this. The Blogger's Challenge for this week is "Think Spring." I just made this card a couple weeks ago, and had not had an opportunity to post it yet. I am so thrilled to have a challenge that works so perfectly for my Spring card.


This image is from Hanglars. I was fortunate enough for a lovely blogger to stamp some images for me and send them out of the kindness of her heart. I so wish we could buy these stamps in the U.S. I am very happy to at least have some of the images to color and decorate cards with.

The colors on this card are my favorites. I love purple and green together. The designer paper is from my stash of Sizzix paper mat stacks. The flowers are Primas and I used The Branch punch to embellish the flowers.


I was also able to use some new charms that I got from eBay. One of the charms (the oval) has an indented area in the front. I colored this with my Copics pen and filled it in with Crystal Effects. It looks sort of like an emerald.

I love the stamping community and all the wonderfully kind stampers out there who just want to help each other out. To the lovely blogger who sent me the Hanglar images, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

To all the rest of the lovely stampers out there, have a great weekend!
