Think Spring

I made this card using Wonder from Mo's Digital Pencil. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at The Sweet Stop. The spin on the challenge this week is to think spring. The challenge at Mo's Challenges is to create a card using spring colors with handmade flower embellishments. I made the flowers by punching 6 daisies out of pink cardstock. I lightly inked the tips of each petal with a slightly darker ink pad. I then folded each petal in half and layered all six daisies. I finished it off by adding a blue pearl to the center and a leaf in behind the flower.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

All Sorts: Nature

Digital Tuesday: Punches

Incy Wincy: Punches/Dies

Pixie Cottage: Something Cute

Stampin B's: Flowers

Wags And Whiskers: Punches

I love those flowers, they're fab. The image is beautifully coloured and the pearls are a lovely touch. I love the embossing too, a really simple effect, but it finishes the card off beautifully.
