Every time I think I've identified a favourite image from Phindy's Place, along comes another to usurp the previous favourite and this is no exception! Called Spring Breeze, it's a pretty, retro image that can be used for Mother's Day. We've already had Mothering Sunday in the UK but this card is certainly destined for my Mum. Mum always quoted and then misquoted Dylan Thomas about our garden when I was growing up. She changed the quote from Under Milk Wood to "Nothing grows in our garden, only washing. And puppies." I'm an only child, Mum far preferred puppies to babies and, to be fair, she bred some very good show dogs:). She's also no gardener, to put it politely.
Having finally steeled myself and cut into my Basic Grey pad of Kioshi, out it came again for this easel card, I am loving the soft colours of it. The flowers were bought at MakeIt in February, leaves are punched from scraps, ribbon and brads are from stash. Image is coloured with Copics and Distress Inks.
There are a couple of literary challenges to enter my card for: Stampin' for the Weekend has "Getting to know you" using one of your favourite books for inspiration, Under Milk Wood is one of those wonderful pieces of writing to come back to again and again; Charisma Cardz Challenge has "Quote me" for their theme. Dutch Dare's challenge is an easel card with something repeated; I've repeated the ribbons and the flowers. I'm also entering Totally Papercraft's Recipe Challenge, which is 4 embellishments, 3 papers, 2 ribbons, 1 image. I've got 4 types of embellie: flower, leaf, brad and ribbon, but more than 4 in total, hope this fits the bill:)
