Embellish Spring Color Trends
Start of another week with a brand new challenge!
Embellish Magazine is back and I am loving their new color challenge.
Although there is still snow on the ground , I am positive spring is right around the corner!. I anxiously wait for Mother's Day because that is officially the end of frost for us, and we can start planting. In fact by the time May rolls in , I am so ready to plant, that the day the garden centers open , I rush to get some color! .Since I love lots of flowers in my garden, I usually choose annuals like Impatiens,Begonias and M arigolds apart from the hardy roses that are already in the ground. Just thinking about it is getting me all excited!.
So, coming back to the challenge , the pastel colors and spring theme led to this card.
This card represents the first sign of Spring , I tried to create a window, and the flowers by it. When I look out of my craft room window , this is what I see, the branch from the Redbud tree , lots of little blooms, and of course birds sitting on the branch and the bird feeder.
A close up of the flowers, using a punch and flourish by spellbinder die,birds are a Martha Stewart punch, sentiment by PTI.
Die cut a window using PTI mat stack 3 die and used a leaf Acrylic overlay by Anna Griffin, to create the transparent seeing a branch through my window effect.
