Beauty of Spring

The theme at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is Pearls this week.Play along for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop or join us as a GDT.Full details are on the challenge blog and don’t forget to check out the DT and GDT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

I’ve used the beautiful Spring Gathering for my card.She’s been printed onto watercolour paper and watercoloured with Distress Inks.I thought it would be in keeping with the gentleness of this figure.I’ve kept to quite a simple layout too to make sure she stays the focus of attention.I’ve added a couple of punched butterflies  to reflect those in the paper and used my newly acquired pearl embellishments.These may be better suited for flower centres but you know what it’s like when you get new stuff!!Anyway last time I used this punch I did a row of pearls down the middle so something different was called for.I stamped the sentiment in brown as I felt being solid black would’ve been overbearing.I used my new 1″ circle punch and it’s perfect for this set of sentiments as there are quite a few circle ones.I like the way it leaves a tiny border.Mind you I’ve wanted one for ages and you wouldn’t believe how difficult it was to find one!
