Celebrate the Colours of Spring

Digistamps4Joy’s new challenge is in full swing. The theme of our challenge is Celebrate the Colours of Spring. We were given this picture for our inspiration

Last week was Team A’s turn to inspire you, this week it’s Team B’s. For my card I used Digistamps4Joy’s Calla Lillies. I merged 2 of the image together to make a bouquet of lillies. I couldn’t decide what kind of a card I wanted this to be, so I left the sentiment off until I do.

I started off with blue cs from Bazzil and then added a layer of orange cs from SU. The dp is from my local dollar store and the blue ribbon was from my stash. I used my Memory Makers corner punch on all of these papers. I cut out blue cs and the image using my Nestibilities scalloped ovals. I coloured the image with my Steadtler pencil crayons and oms. For the corner I used my Madera Corner Die by Memory Box. Onto this I added some orange flowers that I had in my stash and made the yellow centers with my SU punch. The blue jewel flowers in the center are from my local dollar store and I filled the center with yellow Liquid Pearl. I also used drops of the yellow Liquid Pearl on the stems as small buds.

I hope that I have managed to inspire you in some way to come and join us in our challenge. To join us and to see all of the incredible creations that my team mates have made just go to our Challenge blog. We can’t wait to see what you create.
Thanks for looking ~ Charlene
