Springtime Flowers

This month at Power Poppy the very talented and clever Katie Sims challenges us to make a card featuring May flowers.  What could be more perfect, I thought, than Power Poppy's Springtime Love stamp set?  Well, I have to confess I cheated on this one because this card is part of a set which was published in Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine in February (Volume 22 No.8) but I thought this was a perfect opportunity to give it an airing on my blog.......and I did change the sentiment!  The background papers are from Kaisercraft's Key to my Heart 12 x 12 paper pack, layered onto dark blue cardstock and the vertical piece was wrapped with dark blue satin ribbon.  I made the heart by diecutting white cardstock with a Spellbinders Lace Hearts die then I stamped the image with memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, die cut it with a Spellbinders Circle die then layered it onto dark blue cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Lacy Circles die.  This piece was added with foam tape and the sentiment is from Power Poppy's Go Wild stamp set, stamped with memento paris dusk ink and made into a tag.

Copic Colours used were:  B21, B23, B24, B26, RV000, RV10, RV13, RV91, RV95, R000, R01, R02, R81, R83, Y11, Y15, V04, V12 , YG11, YG13, G40, R43, G46.
