In the Pink!!!



Spring has arrived in Surrey and I was inspired to use the lovely flower garden set by Tim Holtz again,  I have also heard some great news that my cousins daughter has just had a baby girl, so all things pink today !!!!


A similar card to yesterday but a much more subtle colour scheme, the paler flowers are much closer to the real blossom I think!  This is another card for the challenge at Simon Says this week, a Happy Birthday theme to celebrate their 7th Birthday!!



While Blog surfing this morning I saw this lovely card made by Dawn and immediately watched the video for the background technique and had to have a go.  I am really pleased with the effect and will be trying this one again! I used some scraps from my basket to finish off the card, and this is also for the challenge at Simon Says and the challenge at Die Cut Divas as I have used my Avery Elle dies for the panel.

Also linking this to the Butterfly challenge at "Creative With Stamps".




Off to play with this technique again.
