Happy Spring

Last night, just before going to bed, I came across a speed sketch challenge from Flourishes that is part of their March release with a chance to win the entire new release with just one challenge. WOW!! But the card must be entered by 10 AM Central Standard Time ThisMORNING. It’s Flourishes first ever SPEED CHALLENGE and my first speed challenge to enter!  So as soon as I got up and grabbed a cup of coffee, I headed to my studio to create this card using the sketch shown below.

I stamped the daffodils from Flourishes Calendar Set 1, colored with Copics, cut with Nesties Circle die and matted on a scalloped circle of green. Using a card base of SU Marigold Morning, I did some embossing, added a rectangle of print edged with scallop border using a punch, added ribbon,  3 rhinestones, and a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers stamped in Memento ink.  Attached the daffodils image.
Challenge is FLLCSC311

Other Challenges:
Papertake: Use 3 of something...used 3 rhinestones
Beary Scrap: Theme is spring.
Scrap Creations:  Anything Goes

Maybe I'll get lucky today ..... maybe the luck of St. Pat's Day will carry over to Flourishes stamp and the new release is great.

Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
