The Beautiful Colours of Spring

Good morning sweet friends ...
I have a card to share which I made for two challenges .... 



This challenge is hosted by Australian 'Colouring Queen ... Kathy Jones  and I have to say her colouring with copics is just amazing ... I don't even own a copic ... sadly ... but I prefer to leave that to the experts ... of which I definitely am not!

The second challenge is Card Patterns  ... this being the sketch 


... and once again the DT have out done themselves ... they are such a hard act to follow!
So on to my card ... using papers from Websters Pages (Lullaby Lane)



I love the fresh green colours of spring ... and the creamy colour of the blossom on the hawthorn trees which always seem to be the first to bloom and bring a beautiful fragrance with them ...
so my card is based on them ...


There are so many things on our beautiful earth that have shades of green ... someone once told me that God created so much green because it is a peaceful calming colour ... I won't argue with that ... 

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Gorgeous card, Ros! Your cards are beautiful without coloring! I love everything about this one.

If you want to color, then get a blender pen(SU) use inks and water(Using your stamp pads or order the bottles of inks or use water color pencils, you do not have to use Copics)

Hi dearie, I think this is one of your best cards ever. You picked some amazing colors and they are giving this card a "fragile"look. And I love it. Fresh and elegant. Your rosette is stunning. Another fabulous creation from you and I never get tired of it! Enjoy your evening...XXXXX

beautiful and soft, that green is so soothing!
When I saw you entered this card for flourishes challenge, it got me wondered if I entered the wrong one because the one I entered has a different theme, but I guess they have different challenges going on.
