Perfect Sentiments Challenge #79 - Spring + Thank You

Hey Bloggers!  We have a brand new challenge for you over at The Perfect Sentiment this week!  Check out my sample below and for more inspiration, check out the blogs of my fellow Perfect Sentiments Design Team members (links in my sidebar) too!

Our challenge to you this week:

Create a Thank You card with a spring theme.  You can use spring embellishments like butterflies or flowers, etc. or you can use a spring image.  There are also spring-themed embossing folders like birds and swirls, butterflies, and more!  Dont forget to include your sentiment on the front!

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Pattie's Creations!  Check out her shop for tons of adorable stamps - perfect for this week's challenge!  I used Basket of Mums from Patti's shop for my sample this week.

Patti's Creations is generously offering our random winner this week 3 free digi's from her shop!

Now for my card...

    ...and the inside...

Now it's your turn!  All you have to do to be entered for the prize drawing is create a card that fits with our theme (don't forget to include your sentiment on the front!), pop it on your blog or other photo-sharing site and link up with us at The Perfect Sentiment!

    Hugs Shell xx

  2. Thanks Shell, I actually colored 2 images, fussy cut the first leaving out the back of the pot then popped the flowers and basket center up. I glued the edges of the basket down to give it a rounder shape.

  3. Love it !! I read the comment to Shell how you popped the flowers and the basket. I have never glued down the edges of a popped object but I am sure going to try it. I agree it does look real !! Beautiful !!


Thank you for leaving a comment, we truly appreciate it!
