"(I love) the Flower Girl..."


SPRINGTIME 
is the new challenge at FSC this fortnight!
If you make a project with anything that is fresh, sunny, colourful or even with flowers,
then you will be up and running for this challenge.

I would like to thank everyone for your awesome comments last time, it blows me away each and every time how supportive and caring the crafty/bloggy world is!

My gosh, is it just me, or does this year seem to be flying past very fast at the moment?
It is actually Autumn here, but Spring is such a beautiful time of year
~ lots of fresh new leaves on the trees, birds everywhere, baby animals, flowers and SUNSHINE!

For my card this time I have gone with fresh and green.


 Mowed Lawn Distress Ink isn't a colour that I have used much of...
but I thought it would be perfect for this card
as it is the juiciest and greenest ink that I have!!!
To set it all off, add freshness
and to make the Mowed Lawn stand out more 
I have complimented it with black and white .

This stamp is by Kaszazz - she is a beautiful stamp just on her own,
so I have left her plain. 
With a hint of green on the garland in her hair and on her dress.  Nothing fancy.
She reminds me of the song about "The Flower Girl" which is now stuck in my head! So here is the link to the song.

The background is made using an acrylic block.
And the flowers coloured with Alcohol Ink Markers.
And for those following my blog regularly - yes, I have used my crop-o-dile again,
 this time for something different in the center of the flowers :)

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you like my card.



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
