Dreaming of Spring

Hi there 🙂 Wow, is March ever flying by!! Almost all our snow is gone (and there was LOTS), and the weather has been quite mild and spring like. Fingers crossed that it stays this way!!! This is my third inspiration project for this month’s Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge. Our theme this month is Easter/Florals, and the DT was thrown an extra challenge to use pearls, gems or sequins on their project. I don’t generally give out Easter cards, so I went with the floral theme here. I used the image called Aromatic Summer, and colored it up with my Copics. After coloring it, I fussy cut it out and attached it to a die cut circle, then placed that on a pretty die cut frame/mat in blue.

I’ve never made a rocker card, so now seemed as good a time as any, so I went to work die cutting the base for the card, using the same blue and white card that I’d used for the image base. A while ago, I got this pretty die set from Carnation Crafts, and it fit the shape of the card perfectly, and coordinated beautifully with the image, once I had it all cut and layered up! I added a bit of color to the blossom cuts, a dainty blue bow, and then added pearls and some glitter to give a pretty finishing touch. I absolutely love how this card turned out, and I have just the person in mind to give it to 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
