Beautiful Blossoms in March


Hello Friends ...

Welcome back to a new challenge over on the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge Blog.

Here's this months INSPIRATIONAL mood board ...

Products used on today's creation are:

OLD BasicGrey 'Sultry' paper pad (circa 2008)
Altenew 'Adore You' Stamp and Die sets 'Card Maker Essentials' (sentiment)
Tombow Markers


I've also used a stylus & pad to condition/shape my flowers after coloring.  A strip of dimensional tape was used to pop up the flowers.

 Here's a friendly rules reminder for this challenge:

  • The challenge will be a Monthly Challenge, starting the 15th of each month and ending the 12th of the following month.
  • The main focus is FLOWERS!
  • A Monthly Mood Board will be provided, you will use it as inspiration.
  • You are limited to 8 entries per challenge.
  • Please link back to us in your entry post and play often!

Thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by my blog today ...
I can't express how much it means to me!

As always . . .

  2. I love the crinkled flowers and the lovely colors. I also like the subtle inked background which, to me, resembles woodgrain. Thanks for a wonderful team project for the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge this month!

  6. I don't know how you do it, my friend, with all your blogs, but you always manage to create a beautiful card for each one of them. This card is so happy and reminds one that Spring is just around the corner. Now, if only Mother Nature will remember that ...

  7. Oh, wow, this is gorgeous! Some of my favorite paper, too, but mine is a 6x6 pad. I think I'm hoarding the last of it, but actually I just have too much paper. I LOVE what you did with this. It's just tooooo pretty, Darlene!

  8. The flowers are so pretty with your lovely papers!

  9. The flowers are gorgeous and I WISH I'd kept some of those fabulous Basic Grey papers from so long ago! Beautiful!
