Things have been really busy for me and I haven't had time to do much stamping but it's time for a Spring Challenge over at TMITA/PCC. This week you can use any acquired image from Nina's Paper Cupcakes store then celebrate Spring with cards that have 3-D flowers and leaves; they can be Prima, die cut, hand cut, silk, etc.
The image I chose is "Girl with Flower". This is one of the new images recently added to Nina's Paper Cupcakes store. The image was printed then cut out with one of the Labels 4 Nestabilities. A second image was printed so I could cut out the flower, with the hands, to attach over the design with dimensional tape to give it some dimension. The Sizzix flowers were cut out using two different shades of pink cs and layered with the lighter color on the inside of two darker shades. They are held together using a yellow SU corduory brad. A piece of Basic Grey "Lemonade" dp was used for the background. A narrow piece of Certainly Celery cs was embossed with the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder. A strip of pink ribbon was added to each side. The flowers were attached with large glue dots. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the leaves. Each one was sponged and placed under the flowers. Some rhinestones were added to the right side of the card.
I want to welcome Jessica Fitz Henry, from Ireland, as the April Guest Designer for TMITA/PCC. You can see all the designer's cards with links to their blogs here. Below is the FREE image that will be given to one of you chosen in a random drawing for playing along in the challenge this week.
I have had a lot of you asking about my daughter. She is still having lots of pain but is slowly recovering from her surgery. I'm sure she is going to be feeling much better in a few days. Thanks for all your concerns and prayers.
