Sweet Spring!

February-blog-hopWatched the PTI MIM video last night & then gave it a try for my PTI Blog Hop card.  I watercolored Distress Inks in spring colors on watercolor paper.  The sentiment is from PTI Year of Flowers Collection. I also stamped one of the flower images in white ink on the left side, but it's very subtle & doesn't show in the picture.  
Decided to leave it simple with the intricate Spellbinder die cut & a few gems being the only embellishment.  
It's a work day so I'll be checking the hop & your blogs later.  Glad you took time to come by.

  26. Oops didn't realise I was so far behind visiting everyone. Had a stressful week with trips to vets and trying to organise The Wimps Cattery holiday which ended in having to change to another cattery as the one we normally use was shut for the times we needed for their own holidays!! All sorted now but quite exhausting dovetailing every thing together.
    Your card is exquisite. Love the pastel colours you chose for your back ground. hugs Mrs A.
