Periwinkle Corner Frame

Good morning folks, brrrrrr it certainly doesn't feel like spring is round the corner yet but hopefully this card will bring a little sunshine to brighten up a dull wintery day. I've used the gorgeous Periwinkle Corner, one of this months fab new stamps from Chocolate Baroque

 I thought this pretty little flower would make a lovely little narcissus and set to stamping to create a frame. Clear stamps make it so easy to position the image when you're creating a frame like this.

I stamped all the flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with distress markers. I inked liberally with lots of distress inks in yellows and greens and used some olive green card to mat and layer.

The sentiment is from Words of Comfort and Cheer, die cut with Spellbinders Marvellous Squares and inked up with distress inks. To finish off i've added some green ribbon and some paper flowers from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Making Mamas: spring colours
colour me creative: Spring colours
Delightful Challenges: get well card
Everybody Art: spring
Paper shelter: spring
Sweet Stampin: lots of layers

Right i'd better go and get the bus to work, I think I'll need my thermals on as its sooooo cold and windy! I nearly blew away yesterday when I took the dogs to the park, they love this weather as it means lots of sticks to squabble over lol.
Thanks for popping by today and for all your kind comments

  5. Love the olive green matting & the way you've made the sentiment the focal point. The green ribbon really brings out the green & I love the glow around the sentiment created by your inking.

  6. This is a lovely card, the corners are so pretty and the addition of the green ribbon complements the green edging you have used. The narcissi is lovely too
