JUGS 25 - Color Me Springy!!

Happy Spring!!!

We've had beautiful Spring-like weather here the last few days, and I've been LOVING it! :)  I have not been loving the cold I picked up somewhere :(.  I haven't felt this awful from a cold in I can't TELL you how long... but enough about me.

It's Saturday -- time for another Just Us Girls Challenge!!  This week, our hostess is Lisa Kind, and since it is the first day of Spring, she has chosen a LOVELY Spring-time color combination for us to work with this week!  Take a look:
A friend of mine recently had to undergo some emergency surgery.  Thankfully, she is doing ok, but it will be a while before she is all better.  I wanted to make something pretty for her to look at :).

I used stamp sets from My Time Made Easy, LLC.  All a Flutter, Fanciful Flourishes, and So Sentimental.  Instead of using that terrific frame for the sentiment, I decided to 'frame' it another way, using 2 of the flourish images from Fanciful Flourishes.  It's hard to see on the full shot of the card, because for some reason, my Spring Moss ink looks all washed out in the full shot.  Here's a close up, so you can see the details...

 I think I will definitely use this again, I love how it turned out.  The flowers were done in Lemon Tart and Bashful Blue, using the rock n roll technique, and the centers are kissed with baby blue liquid pearls.

Here's a shot of the full card:
So glad you could come by today - and I hope that you get the opportunity to play along, we'd love to see what YOU do with these colors!!!

Be sure to show the rest of the team some love --

Stamps: All A Flutter, Fanciful Flourishes, So Sentimental
Ink: Bashful Blue (SU!), Lemon Tart, Spring Moss (PTI), Brilliance Chocolate

I just love this card, Tracey! So simple, but so much going on! Love the way you framed the sentiment...very clever use of the flourishes and flowers! Your friend will be delighted with this card and hopefully it will make her forget her illness for a while!
