Thinking of Spring!

I was keen to take part in the SSS Flickr group challenge "Stencils" again although the only stencil I have is called "Falling Snow" I wasn't keen to make another Christmas card yet so have had to improvise!!  I used the Simon Says "Flower Card Wrap" die to cut a stencil and used that for my background, which I dabbed slightly with Bundled Sage Distress ink.  The Flowers are also Simon Says and are from the "Even More Spring Flowers set".  I stamped and embossed these in Gold before fussy cutting and water colouring.

I will also add this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week as the stamp set is new to me.  Also the Love Handmade cards Flickr Group challenge "Anything Goes".

Have a great week.
