Paris in the springtime at Divas

Todays new challenge over at Divas By Design is Buttons & Bows & sponsored by Iva Nova Chest. I am still in pain with my hands & arm, so once again chose to use an image which didn't need much colouring. I used my Prismas to colour the flowers.The image was stamped & given to me by a friend & I found it in my image box, so no idea whose it is. The papers are Bearly Mine Mixed Media 2, which can be purchased here. I stamped a Magnolia postcard stamp onto the paper using Salty Ocean DI. Added ribbon & buttons from stash & there you have an easy card. In this picture, the image is not straight, I saw it after photographing & corrected it, but didnt have time to take another picture. I am due to have a splint fiited tomorrow on my elbow, so hopefully can get back to making the sort of cards I love, especially as I went to Sir Stamp A Lot for a class & bought 5 new dies, so cant wait to play with them properly.

Great card Dawn - not much colouring as you say, but the bit there was you did perfectly - very sweet flowers. Like you I have an image box, & I must congratulate you on dipping into it from time to time - something I really should do instead of buying more digi's! Jx

This card is lovely. The colours are so vibrant and rich and I love the overstamping on the background. The ribbon and buttons add pretty pops of colour as do those gorgeous blue flowers in the image. Thanks for joining our Mother's Day/For the Ladies challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon. I also hope your pain eases soon.
