Spring Blossoms

     My apologies for being a day late posting my DT card for the newest weekly challenge at QKR Stampede.  My cold has turned into bronchitis and I'm spending most of my time in bed, except to get up to go to the bathroom or to take my antibiotics.

     For my card today, I used an image from our sister company, Eureka Stamps, called "Frame Full of Flowers."  I thought it was perfect for spring card.

Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with Tonic Studios die
Shimmer ribbon from stash
Double layer bow hand-tied
Yellow CS hand-bleached w/ cotton swab
     (This is the oldest technique I ever use.  It was the first thing I learned when I started with scrap booking and I just brought it along when I ended up making cards.)
