Signs of Spring

Hello everyone!  Marie here with a new card for you today.  

 I know -   it isn't spring but I got a new stamp and I can't wait to share it with you!      
As you  may know, Theresa Momber and I had an opportunity to spend a couple days with Patricia, from
Paper Temptress!    
I am so excited to share one of the stamp sets I received from Theresa while we were there!    

I's Double Monday!  
I am using this card for my Dt Challenge at Totally Gorjuss 
and my DT post for Paper Temptress!   

Our fun challenge  at  Totally Gorjuss  is "Bling"!    
I placed some bling in two corners .  :) 
That's an easy peasy kind of challenge and I hope to see you there!     

My DT post for Paper Temptress shows some of the gorgeous paper
that one can find on Paper Temptress!   


Copic Alcohol Ink Markers
Ranger Distress ink - Dandelion
Ranger Distress Ink - Broken China
Memento Tuxedo Black
Copic Opaque White Ink

Focal image:  Neenah Solar White @ Paper Temptress
Designer - Casual Friday (GKD)
Mat layers - Deep Blue Crepe  Rushe  @ Paper Temptress
Card base: Heavenly White 120# @ Paper Temptress

Aren't the flowers pretty?
I stamped two sets of flowers and fussy cut around them.
I used my McGill molding pad and tools and gently molded the shape.
Pop Dots supported the flowers from the underside.
Doesn't this technique make the flowers look dimensional?  
You give it a try :D    

Speaking of dimensional -   Although the picture doesn't show it -
The Deep Blue Crepe Rushe paper has the coolest texture and adds to  the  dimensional look.

I am linking this card with the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Imaginations Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
 Totally Gorjuss  - Bling!
Sister's of Craft - Anything Goes!

Thank you for stopping by!  
Hope you see you soon and have a great day! :D
