A piece of Spring

dtcards11thmarch 002


There’s another new challenge at  Digi Sketch Challenge and the theme this fortnight is Easter/Spring.We have the super S K Digis as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Sony’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used the pretty and versatile Flowers in Bloom by S K Digis.The image has been printed out 3 times.The first layer onto white card,the second on a green paper and thirdly onto a yellow paper.The flowers on the top layer have been shaped with a ball embossing tool before being adhered.Yellow gems have been placed in the centre of each flower.The sentiment has been stamped and another gem has been added to the sun on it.I was certainly thinking warm Spring day thoughts here – a little different to the rain,fog and snow we’ve been experiencing the past few days…lol And to keep in with the bejeweled theme some more were arranged in the corner,descending in size.The card base and layers,including the embossed piece,were cut from  5 x 7 card blanks in my stash.

Supplies :

Image : Flowers in Bloom by S K Digis
Sentiment : From a freebie stamp set in a magazine (can’t remember which one)
Medium : Jet Black Archival Ink
Papers & Card : DP Past freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine,Royal & Langnickel Pastel 5 x 7 card blanks

    Hi Lisa thank you for popping over to my blog and leaving the lovely comment. Sorry my card doesnt fit the 2 fave colours to fit the challenge. I am not sure why it doesnt fit as my colours are green and shades of orange maybe the colour doesnt come acroos correctly
