A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Flower Shower

Hi everyone and a big Hello to my lovely new followers!  Hope you're all keeping well and dry - oh yes!  Spring is definitely here .... along with the showers!!!  

Today I'm showcasing my most recent card made for my Guest Design spot over at ABC Challenges.  Their challenge this week is Bring on the Flowers!   

I used this gorgeous gal called 'Spring Showers Tilly'.  This fabulous image is a Simply B Stamp and you can find her here.  It's the first time I have used one of these images and, wowee! .... I absolutely love her!
As I've been feeling a little under the weather recently, my embellishment mojo seems to have gone a bit AWOL!  This is an extremely CAS card for me but I really enjoyed just focusing on my colouring for a change.
I thought I'd give Tilly a pretty flower shower rather than a rainy one :)  I played about with Word to come up with my sentiment and then had fun and games placing Tilly in the centre lol.   

A little close up of my sentiment, which I coloured up to make it look 3D.  A little tricky but I think it kinda worked :)   I followed Alyce's fabulous tutorial for the grass - which can be found here.
Copics used:

Purple Tones:  V000, V12, V15, V17     Pink Tones:  RV13, RV21, RV29
Turquoise Tones:  BG01, BG05, BG09   Blue Tones:  B00, B02, B05
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E21, R11    Grass:  G99, G94, G85, YG93

Paper pieced umbrella and bp's are from LOTV and are called Bonnets and Bowties.  The flowers, ribbon and pearls are all from my stash.

I'd like to enter my card into the following:
