FTTC112 Happy Spring...and more!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I have lots to tell you today...first I'm showing off my card for this week Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC112. Our host this week is Tammy and she is challenging us to this Inspiration Photo.....


When I first saw this quilt I was thinking of fun Easter Eggs...giggle....I know I'm goofy!!! So I ran with that idea and created this fun Easter Gift Set!





I used the brand new Flourishes Spring is Sprung Set. The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with these Copic Markers ~ B0000, B00, E00, E25, E29, Y08, YR09,V11, G21, G24, YG11. I added some piercing on top of my card and embellished it with some Ribbon, Silver Cord and a Button. My little gift purse was created with the PTI Favor It Box Die. I used the DP from the SU Melon Mambo Collection and added the same Ribbon embellishments as on my card. The sentiment is also from the Spring is Sprung Set.

Now it's time to hop on over to the rest of the team to see their ideas on the Inspiration picture ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, BettyTammy ideas. Please also help us welcome our new super sweet April Guest Designer Pattie Goldman.

Please make sure to stop by again later...I have some more exciting news to share!!! See ya then...hugs ~S~
