Flower Bunch & Topiary

I have a couple of cards to show you today. The first one uses a new pretty flower image called Flower Bunch, from Starving Artistamps. The Background stamp is Pretty Background (p25.02) The sentiment is from the Sun Spirit Studios Celebrations set, available at Starving Artistamps.

I colored this with my Copic Sketch markers, and the pearls are Joy! crafts (Ellen's Store).

My next card is for the February Dirty Girls past and present challenge. This month it was time to "Give a Shout Out" ....featuring stamps designed by fellow Dirty Girls.

Required Element: Spring Color Combo

Restricted Element: NO CuttleBug/Big Shot/Wizard or similar diecut/embossing machines.

My card uses Topiary Perch designed by Anna Wight (Whipper Snapper) The sentiment is from the new PaperTrey Ink Everyday Blessings set. The papers, card stock, and ribbon are from the new PTI line. Bling is from Hero Arts.
