Hi Friends,

It's that time again for our Twisted Thursday Challenge - Spring Colours.  Join me in making a card with  spring colours. The design team has put together some wonderful inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.  Here is my card for the challenge.

I had fun trying to come up with a card without using my copics.  I have to admit that I'm a copic girl at heart so it was quite challenging for me reinvent the process of how I begin to create a card.  I had this paper in my scraps and loved all the sunflowers but didn't have very much of it so I used some solid clours and stamped on it to make my own designer paper.  I love these sentiments from Close to my Heart called Treasure Life.  The flower pot is a SB die and I added some Flower Soft to resemble soil and decorated the pot with some rhinestones. The flower is a layered embellishment by Melissa Frances.  I put some cinnamon stickles in the center for dimension.  This if my first time using my Marianne die to frame the sentiment that was wet embossed in cinnamon and placed on with some pop dots. Lastly, I used some green ribbon and brads to finish it off!

I hope your stop by the Outlawz and join us this week for an exciting Spring Colour Challenge!  Thanks for stopping in!
