We also have some fab prizes and this month you could win this gorgeous sentiment stamps from Whimsy Stamps:

On to my make for this month. Spring is almost upon us and I need to keep reminding myself of this so I decided that would be my theme:

Meet Tilda Decorates Easter. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored her with Spectrum Noir Markers and ink the edges of the image card with distress ink.

I then chose coordinating papers from my stash and matted these onto green card. I inked a doily with the same distress color before arranging my layers onto a white card base.

I chose some Wild Orchid Flowers and arranged these before adhering to my card using a hot glue gun. I then used White opal liquid pearls on the image and corners of the card just to balance the design.

I love using flowers on my cards - I do have quite a stock of them but they look so pretty in the boxes that I don't like separating them :)

I hope you like my design and this inspires you to come and join our 1st challenge!

Hi Sharon,
Spring will be with you before you know it & all that snow will be gone :)
Tilda really looks lovely with the way you have coloured her. I haven't used Spectrum Noir Markers before but they certainly look great & I will have to give them a try. I love your design, the papers & flowers you have used really set the tone for warmer weather :) I nice touch with adding the liquid pearls in the corner. Beautiful design. Thank you for sharing xx

Happy crafting
