Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty nice ... except for the weather. Yesterday was cold and windy but at least the sun was out. Today it's cold and raining ... a dark and dreary day. Sounds like a perfect day to stay inside and make cards, right?
Yesterday when I was surfing the blogs and challenges, I ran across a sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge Blog that I liked. Their challenge is a sketch with a spin ... Think Spring! Believe me, with all the nasty weather we've had this winter, spring is constantly on my mind these days. And I had the perfect image for their challenge, too. I used Meljen's Designs Swirly Daisy Pot on my card today. Doesn't it make you think of spring? I colored my image with copics and colored pencils and added some stickles to the center of the flowers. I punched out a little butterfly and added some tiny pearls. And then I tied some embroidery floss bows through my buttons and added those to my card. A very clean and simple card.
Don't forget to stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog to check out Melissa's latest release. You'll also find all the details about the latest card challenge.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
