Hydrangea

"Happy Easter Everyone!"

It's not however an Easter card I'm sharing with you today, but it was one I couldn't wait to post, as I love how it's turned out.

I used a new image from Bugaboo called Block For You From Me, & I so love the stamp!  It's possibly because hydrangea always make me think of home.  When we were little, my Mum had a huge pink hydrangea bush at the front of the house beside the door.  Can't say I really rated it as a child, but clearly it left a lasting impression as I do love hydrangea's now and think back to just what a beautiful plant it was.

Anyway that's the story behind the flower, now for the card.




CaS design, Promarker colouring & finished with gems and a ribbon - simples!
(Rose Pink/Blossom/Flex Pale Blossom & Marsh Green/Pear Green/Lime Green)

I apologise that yet again, a section on the card has been raised - you will be pleased to hear, my tube of silicon glue is now finished! However, Glitter Pot have a post free weekend, so I won't be without for long! This glue is fast taking the place of glossy accents as my favourite card finisher offer!

Challenges;
Catch The Bug - Card stock & bling - gems added to sentiment dots & glamour dust to butterfly
Raise The Bar - Lovely simple sketch
Passion For Promarkers - Bingo - Ribbon/Free/Blooms
Di's Digi's - Flower Frenzy
Crafty Boots - Flowers
House of Gillli - Flowers/Ribbon
Brown Sugar - Flowers

& now in blue - told you I loved this image! ( Cornflower/Lilac/Flex Glacier Blue)
