CELEBRATE SPRING WITH FLOWERS AT THE OUTLAWZ MONDAY CHALLENGE

Today's challenge at The Outlawz is to add spring flowers to your greeting card (that must have a sentiment on the outside.

Here is my entry:


I found the cutest free colouring page on the internet and sized it down to card size (my card is five and a half inches square), and used my alcohol markers to colour:

To make up my card I used a pale maize coloured CS onto which I mounted a square of DP with the edges chalked.  There is a white die cut with gem embellishments.  

To create the faux window effect, I made another diecut from the blue gingham DP, but used the oval  piece that came out of the centre.  It was chalked all the way round and then pasted inside the white diecut.  The sentiment is a peel off, a silver one that I coloured green using a dark green Spectrum Noir marker.

The double layer silk flower has a metal flower centre attached by a green flower sequin and bead.

I think this image and card certainly have a Spring feel!
