Spring Flowers

Wishful thinking about spring flowers. :)  I stamped the lovely Flourishes Sweet Violet set and colored the flowers and leaves using the watercolor markers. The sentiment is from Verses - QQ0830-D - Spring.
The challenge for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is to use pearls. The City Crafters Challenge is to Stamp It. The design is courtesy of Card Patterns Sketch # 96.

Thanks for stopping by!

  12. This is lovely Sue and certainly makes me long for Spring. I've decided I definitely don't like Winter!

    Love the vibrant colours you have used, they are so fresh and the butterfly is really delicate.
