Spring Flowers at QKR Stampede

     Happy Friday and enjoy the start to your weekend.  We have a new challenge at QKR Stampede this week and our theme is "Spring Flowers."  There are so many gorgeous flower images at QKR that it took me a while to choose this one to use (Digi 16220 "Bouquet") but the search was fun in itself.


I found this sketch at Digi Sketch
and flipped it top to bottom.  I also took some liberties
 with the placement of the gemstones.


     I printed the image and sentiment onto a scrap of CS, then used my ProMarkers to color the image.  I used a die set from QuicKutz to cut the image and the mat.  I believe all the dp is from DCWV but again, those are mainly scraps from the stash so don't hold me to that.  I know they came from 12" x 12" scrapbooking paper originally.  
     The wide sheer ribbon was another scrap in my stash and I added a layer of gold mesh on top of it.  The satin ribbon I used to tie the double bow (bless my Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker!) may have come from Really Reasonable Ribbon but I'm not sure.  I added the small paper flower and the gem stones and pronounced it finished.  Another card that pleases me, even more so because it's all from things in my stash.  The more I use things up, the better my excuse to buy some new things.  :-D

     Challenges:

     I hope you're going to enter the challenge at QKR this week.  Find some flowers suitable for spring and make something wonderful.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  13. What a pretty color combination and such wonderful shading, Miss Connie! Love that ribbon, and the little jewels as well. I am envious of your pretty bow - mine never look good, no matter which tool I use LOL - the image is really beautiful, and it must have been fun coloring it. Hope you are doing well, and I've been keeping your little grandson in my prayers. hugs, de
