Good morning
It feels like I haven't been here for ages! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.
This month over at Lily-Boo too challenge blog we have a Spring themed challenge going on! The challenge is a colour challenge and the only stipulation is that your card/project includes the colours yellow, pale green and blossom.
My card is quite simple, I made this little thank you card using a gorgeous daisy image from the Flowers Collection. I cut an A5 card in half so this card opens from the side and covered with backing paper from a lovely new gingham download from Pink Petticoat. I left the image quite plain and just paper pieced the flower centres with some spotty papers again Pink petticoat and coloured the leaves with promarkers. I used one of my new Martha border punches for the white punched strip and inked the edges in pale green and added some lemon organza ribbon. Finally I inked the edges of the card and added a thank you rub on.
Be sure to pop over to the Lily-Boo too blog and take a look at the gorgeous creations the Dt have made this month and we'd love you to play along too!
Have a wonderful week!

Julie this is really pretty, I love the simplicity, but can tell there is a lot of work gone into paper piecing the flowers. Love the gingham paper.

Julie, what a beautiful card my friend. I love the colors you used, so spring and the flower is just beautiful. I would love to play along, but I don't have any flower images. Might try using something else. Hope we can chat soon, maybe Wednesday around 2:00 p.m., my time. That is around 10:00 p.m., your time. Miss our chats!

Hugz, xx
