Pansy Teacup #4 entry

I have been having so much fun creating cards for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I always enjoy the fun that goes with entering and also viewing and commenting on what others have done as well. And, there is lots of inspiration believe me from all who join in. If you would like to join check out the link for it and also there is a logo on my side bar showing the dates of the hop too.

This time I chose to use an image and sentiment from the Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set called Teacup Pansies Set #833. I thought immediately that this would be a wonderful set for the Spring hop. I can just see a pansy planted in a tea cup for a great spring time gift.


I stamped the image and sentiment with Versafine black ink. Then I colored the image in with Prismacolor pencils. I then die cut it with a Gina Marie Designs stitched circle die. This was again layered onto a darker blue die cut circle before adding it to the gingham pattern paper. All was placed onto a base card of white card stock and finished with the addition of the sentiment.

I am also entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge with a theme of Plant Kindness.

Thanks so much for visiting and for all the great comments you leave. I very much appreciate them.

God bless,
Verna

I LOVE that image, and you have colored it beautifully. I also love how you framed the image with the dark blue card stock and then mounted it on the gingham. Really pretty!!

The background is perfect for the color you used in coloring the pansies.That is one of the best stamp sets that SNS have put out, I think. As usual, you put a lot of thought in making this card jive and it does.
