Spring Primroses

Good morning, We have finally got some nice spring weather. despite the snow and floods last week the sun is shining and the birds are starting to sing!

Today I am sharing with you a design for a challenge blog that I am now designing for. Jo's Scrap Shack runs a weekly sponsored challenge and this is my first inspiration post for them. 

The sponsor this week is Imagine That Digital Stamps and if you are lucky to win you will receive a $12 coupon to their store.

My card is using their Primrose Set. It comes with both a colored and outline version. There are also 3 sentiments that fit in the banners on the image but I chose to use these in a different way:

I printed out the outline image, cut this out on my Scan 'n' cut and colored with alcohol markers and colored pencils.
I then used my graphics program to resize the primroses and fade them. I added 2 of the sentiment - Mother's Day and Primrose to make a digitally designed backing paper.
 I matted this on yellow and green card to pull the colors from the colored image.
I used a white 5x7 inch card base and added a few enamel dots to complete the card.

Hi Sharon!
First I want to say welcome to the team and I am so happy you are with us hun! For your first DT project, you did an amazing job!! This card is so pretty!! I love the handmade background paper! That is so clever and you colored in these gorgeous florals so beautifully. Yellow is such a fun color, as I call it, it's a "happy" color. It just makes me smile. Thank you for giving us such beautiful inspiration!
