TSG45 - Yellow Spring Flowers

Hey Everyone!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and that this week
brings you all happiness and joy!

As it's Monday today that means it's time for a

There She Goes Challenge

TSG Challenges

This week's challenge is bought to us this
week by the Trendsetter of the week
and one of the most talented ladies I know Sandra!!

With spring almost officially here, she has
challenged us to create a card
that features flowers and incorporates the color yellow
(the flowers do NOT need to be yellow!).
After the tough winter a lot of you have been experiencing this year,
I am sure that you are in need of a little spring ;)

Ok, well for me we have just hit Autumn in Australia, so things
are cooling down and we have already started pulling out our
jumpers from hibernation. So you will have to forgive me if I don't
exactly get the "Spring" feeling across...LOL!

But I have done my best and this is my card...

I have used the gorgeous stamp set " Blooms"
from TSG for this creation.
I absolute LOVE this set and can see myself using it over and over!!
I chose this gorgeous DP from MME called "Ooh La La..."
It has the perfect shade of yellow...Don't you think?
I also used one of the beautiful sentiments that come with the set!

I coloured the flower in with my Prisma's....
Using PC1012, PC1002 and PC1032 for the flower itself
and PC1005, PC1090 and PC911 for the stem and leaves.
I decided to cut it out and place it on some text paper from
My Little Yellow Bicycle called "Love Letters" for
...I don't know...Something different!

Then I stamped these daisies, coloured them in using the
same colours as the other flower and cut them out to
decorate the inside of the card...

Now if you would like to play this week head on over to the
