Challenge time

Morning to you all! Hope the day is filled with sunshine and happiness. Myself is preparing to go to "Folkuniversitetet" where I have my "get back to working life" meeting of the week. Should have been the stables as well, but I am in way too much pain for that today. My right leg is refusing to straighten out at this point. So no good idea going to the stables then, besides I got tons of pain when I went there last. I am not really sure it's such good idea to be there for me unfortunately.

We have a new challenge up for you over at the Bearly Mine Challenges this week. The theme is set to "Spring flowers". That means we want to see some of them on your creation. Not that hard I hope?


For my card have I used one of Donnas new digi sets called Floral Surprise and Mini Dots. Don't ask why I used that soft organge mini dot stripe, I should have gone for something more bold but now it's too late. LoL The image is from The stamping boutique and is called Tulips. Tulips was my grandmothers favourite flowers and I had here in my mind when making this card. It's a little more than a week since she passed now and I will miss her dearly. She was over 98 years old and very senile so it was a blessing for her, still...

The image is coloured with my Letraset Family and added details with my Prisma pencils. The daisy flowers are from the Ribbon girls and I made the leaves with a boss cut die. Gemstones from Magnolia. And the card design is inspired by a sketch from Little Claire Designs. I love the clean look of this design even if I have altered it slightly. Artistic freedom, right?

Our sponsors this week is I am Roses and The Greeting Farm. More info is found over the challenge blog.




Do please come and join us and spread some flowers into the world! We could all use some colours in our lifes.

Love n hugs
Marie

Tulips are my favorite flowers too :o) What a sweet way to always remember your grandmother. Mine is going to be 97 next month and she suffers from Alzheimers, which is quite sad. I think the softer orange paper is very complimentary and allows the tulips to really pop. Thanks so much for joining us this week at ABC Challenges.
