Spring Flowers with MMM

March sees a new theme brought to us by Jacqueline, the Make My Monday challenge owner and leader.   The new monthly theme is:-

and this week we would like to see your "spring flowers"

Now I adore Spring is my favourite season of the year!  I have this week made an 8x8 card and used some very old K&Co vintage papers which I have machine stitched to give an extra touch!  My focal image is of bluebells - I have bluebells galore in my front (very small) forecourt and love them.  Thank you my friend Christine for the loan of the PaperArtsy stamp - I hope you like what I have done with it.

I have also used a Martha Stewart punch, my own PaperArtsy sentiment, distress inks for edging and shading and some gold "binding" and ribbon.

The main image has been stamped in Versafine ink, decoupaged slighly and then painted with Lyra Water Crayons.

Pop over to the Make My Monday blog to see the wonderful inspiration from my fellow DT friends...amazing as usual!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:-

Top Tip Tuesday - "Stitching"
My top tip is to cut the ribbon from garments/clothes and use these in your ribbon stash.

Just Inspirational Challenges - "Photo of Meadows filled with Daffodils & Bluebells"
