Springtime romance

Morning all , hope all in the UK are surviving the wind rain and snow, and those elsewhere hope the weather is being favourable to you all too.

My card this morning will hopefully cheer everyone up as I have gone with the springtime flower colours suggested by Daring card makers and the flowers of violets and primroses which are apparently the flowers of February. This one I made for no one in particular and simply for the try at the colour blending challenge at Make it colourful.

I used one of my LOTV stamps , wish I could afford more as they are just so cute and decided that I would use some of the ribbon flowers I'd been playing at making too.

There is also a colour challenge of blending blue and purples at make it colourful so I actually remembered to make a not of which Promarkers I used, well the blues and purples anyway, so the hat I used Prussian blue,royal blue and purple. The dress I used bluebell lilac and lavender and the shoes violet and bluebell.I know Zoe gave a tip to use purples as shadows but the dress I actually did in reverse and used Bluebell for the shades.The yellow underskirt and flowers I used primrose and buttermilk and leaf green.

The ribbon flowers I made using a tutorial on RRR from before Christmas, sorry not sure of the exact link.
I put everything on a pearlised lilac card and did some dry embossing around the edge to form a frame. The ribbon is recycled from a bought card and the mirri card from my scraps box.
