Flower Girl

I would like to say hello to all my new and exciting followers!

Today here in Warrington it is lovely and sunny but oh my goodness it is very very cold.  Looking out my window it looks like a clear Summer day, but it isn't.  With Spring in mind I made this card encouraged by the lovely blue skies here.

The base card is from Dawn Bibby's Flower Patch Collection.  This is an absolutely fabulous collection and I am very pleased with my purchase.  The inside of the card I have covered with pearlescent paper which has swirls and flowers on and added the greeting which says "Just for You".  The image is a new stamp that I won from a blog challenge over at Elphine House she is called Laura flower girl.  I have used this image before on another card and just had to use her again.  I have coloured her in using my watercolour pencils and using Dew Drops Versamagic ink in Thatched Straw coloured the edge of the topper which was cut out using one of my trusty Spellbinder dies.  I took a flower from my stash and took it apart to follow the line of her dropping petals and coloured them with the same ink as mentioned above.  The rest of the flowers around the archway are from the above mentioned kit.

Thank you for stopping by today
