Floral delights challenge at MAWTT

Good morning all

We have a fab new sponsor over at MAWTT 


are sponsoring us this week 
for our

Floral Delights Challenge
(anything with flowers)

The DT girls got to choose a sponsor digi to use in this challenge and I have to say I was delighted with the gorgeous floral images we had to choose from - they are all so pretty - and there's some fab inspiration on the shop website too - you really should go on over and take a peek



I chose the gorgeous Morning Glory digi to work with - I love morning glory - they are just so pretty - it also reminds me of a lovely novel I read years ago of the same name - by Lavyrle Spencer -  I remember the story so well - just a simple tale, set just after the depression in America, that has stayed in my memory for all these years, a real old fashioned love story beautifully written
 give it a try if you love this sort of story - I'm sure you'll love it
 for me the book and the flower always remind me of each other!

Anyway back to my card, I kept it really simple to keep the focus on the image, I always think images like this look so much better kept plain and simple 

This is what I did....

Image - Morning Glory from a Passion for stamps
Coloured with copics
Happy birthday stamp - from  Anna Griffin flower set
Die cut behind sentiment - spellbinders
Die cut corners - whimsy stamps
Card - from my stash

There really are the most gorgeous cards on the MAWTT blog this week
 - go on over and be inspired - after all spring is just around the corner!

Challenges I'm entering with this card

ABC challenges - clean and simple
Crafty bloggers network - flowers
Whoopsi daisy challenge - die cuts
crazy challenge - no design paper



Hugs
