Spring love

Morning all and another Tuesday here again, where does time go?

Over on Creative craft challenges we have another fab challenge and super dooper sponsor too and more waffle from yours truly as I'm the host of the post this time. our challenge this time is hearts and flowers so as long as they are on your project it will count so that gives you loads of options not just valentines day, but anything from engagements to anniversary to just saying hi and I love you to a special friend or your mum.

I decided to set myself a task and use one of the pre-printed cards I won in a candy some time back. I love the cards and keep getting them out and looking at them wondering how best to use them, so I decided I would use one regardless and find a way. I chose one that already had hearts and flowers printed on it so I didn't have to worry too much about the theme and then just had the task of what else to do. I did think about using a sentiment but then I found that one of the Sassy girls I got for christmas fit just perfect so I used that. I coloured with promarkers and used sakura pens for the eye highlights and to add gloss to the lips, heart and shoes and glitter pen to the swirls of water. I stuck to yellows and greens , the colours of the card and have to say I am totally chuffed with the result. 
Here it is:-

Great story how you came to this card. I have to do that myself too, just taking one stamp or image out of the drawer and do something with it!
