Spring Wishes


Well, the temperatures have dropped here once again below the “Shiver-Me-Timbers” range so I thought it would be fun to jump in on the PTI Hop this month with the theme of Spring, I haven’t hopped with them for so long!   Aren’t we all longing for Spring to come already?  


I loved the butterfly invitation in the graphic above and thought maybe I could try and re-create something along those lines with this design.  I used a few PTI sets - Friends till the End, and Mat Stack 3 Collection for this design, colouring up the flowers with Copics, fussy cutting them out and then using ink for the frame matted on a Mat Stack 5 Die and then stamping background in various colour inks.  It’s a pretty palette don’t you think?  

A few little sweet details, including the glittery strip along the side and some pretty clear sequins for some added interest.  

Copics in case you’re interested are B60, B63, B66 and YG21, YG23.  

Enjoy your day!

So pretty, Christine! It's nice to see an old friend, Friends 'Till the End, again--I must break it out again soon now! :-) The clear sequins are a nice touch--they caught my attention even though they're clear!
