Lilac



   This month the Send A Smile For Kids challenge would like you to make a card for mum (from the kids) or anything goes for kids.
   I have used the lilac stamp from Joanna Sheen's Garden Flowers collection and coloured it using Promarkers. After matting and layering it onto mauve and white card I added a bow to the lilac stems. The sentiment was also matted onto mauve card and to this I glued a tiny pearl in each of the corners.

Mushrooms



   The digi stamp image from Sheep Ski Designs was coloured using Promarkers and after cutting it out using a Tattered Lace pearl square die I dusted the background using Distress Inks. The decoupaged mushrooms were cut out using Carnation Crafts toadstool flurry die set. I used their downloadable vingette but adjusted the colours slightly. The sentiment was cut using a Tattered Lace die.

Spring lamb

I have used Hunkydory's Little Book of Sweet Springtime and decoupaged one of the images. I matted it onto silver mirri and a pastel yellow card. (I'm not quite sure why it looks more green in the photo) I used tattered Lace dies to cut the sentiment.
