Thinking of You

Happy New Year!!  Since it's a new month, it's time for a new challenge from The Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This month the challenge is Anything Goes and our fabulous sponsor is Sparkle n' Sprinkle.

And here is the card I created using one of their beautiful images:
 Isn't it beautiful??  I'm taking a little bit of a break from Christmas and winter creations for a little bit of spring.  Ahhh . . . refreshing!  Being a little short on time (but when isn't that the case?) I opted to keep this very CAS, printing the image and sentiment from the same set on one sheet of card stock.  And that, folks, is about the extent of my digital image manipulation.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noirs and added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the center of the daisies.  You can see it a little in the photo below.
I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel, mounted it on some pale aqua card stock and finished everything off with three tiny purple gems under the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hop on over to the LTSCB blog to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created.

Stamps: Sparkle N' Sprinkle "Bonnet Bouquet" digi image and sentiment

A very pretty image and so beautifully coloured too. I agree with you about taking a break from holiday cards (although they are so much fun to make!) - it is lovely to see your fresh floral card in the Time Out gallery - thanks so much for joining us! Jill
