Spring Color Challenge

Check out the great Spring color challenge at Playing in Paradise.  This card was made for my DH as he recovers from surgery. Great color palette even for 'men's' cards.


The stamp is from My Hearts Stamps for You.  The hand drawn plaid on the quilt and the image were colored Copic markers.

This is the great inspirational photo that was used to create this card. Each week Playing in Paradise offers a different challenge. Last week was a sketch challenge and this week is as color challenge. They even have inspirational photo challenges. Check them out, there's something for everyone!


Wouldn't that butterfly be a great addition to my Butterfly Garden?

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
