Welcome Spring

I loved the new releases earlier this week at PTI, in particular, the new Tulip Time stamps and dies shown to us on Wednesday.  So I pulled out one of my favorite PTI stamps from their Spring Jar fillers, and made a card.  I was inspired by Dawn to color them in shades of aqua, after seeing her coloring her peonies that way.

PTI is also introducing new stencils this time around, so I added a stencilled background to my bouquet.  My card is for the Create Along with Us challenge, and it also works for one of Winnie &Walter's Birthday challenges: Lydia's Floral Challenge.

  3. Beautiful card, love the colours you used. Another stamp I need/ want!! As we continue to swelter here I have to say I al looking forward to Autumn and some cooling breezes.

  4. This is gorgeous - I love how folk can colour outside the normal colours, especially in flowers - I very rarely manage to colour 'outside the lines' as it were.

  5. Spectacular card Lin. Love that soft backround a perfect spot for those lovely tulips to rest.

  6. Wow, stunning!! Love this so much, Lin!!


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
