Bluebells from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, I do love bluebells but unfortunately they won't seem to grow in my garden but never mind, this gorgeous bluebell stamp is a perfect reminder that Spring is on the way. Its from 'Spring Foliage' one of the beautiful new stamp sets released this month over at Chocolate Baroque, they are all on special offer at the minute so do pop over and have a peek at them. 

It was a nice easy card to make, I stamped the image across the centre of some white card coloured with promarkers. I stamped the image on some more white card, and again coloured with promarkers. I die cut the image and used the markers to colour the card for matting and layering. I added some lace and gingham ribbon and stamped the sentiment (from Best Relative Ever) in the corner.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Gem of a Challenge: gingham or checks
One Stop craft: anything goes

Well after my long weekend off work i'm back to the grindstone again this morning so I'd better get myself ready and brave the weather to catch the bus. It seems really cold here again, I wonder if more snow is on the way. 
Thanks for visting today,

  2. It's a beautiful card Claire - love that bluebell stamp. Sun is shining here but sky looking ominous. I could be seeing snow here in a few minutes too.

  4. This is gorgoeus Claire, I love to see the bluebells out. The sun is very bright here at the moment, I hope it lasts, at least we can pretend it's spring (if we don't go outdoors).

  5. Super with the double embellishing use of gingham & lace giving a lovely homely feel to this. The classy layering beauifully accents the flowers. Lovely breath of spring to come............ despite the snow that's falling outside my window.
