Spring into Inspiration Monday

The first Inspiration Monday of March over at the Crafty Bloggers Network  This month's challenge theme is Spring or pastel and the sponsors are Just Some Lines Digital Stamps and Petal Lu beautiful hand made flowers.  Why not pop over and take a look at the fabulous DT creations and have a look at this month's challenge.

Here is my DT card for this week's Inspiration Monday which I based on "Spring".

The image is Just Some Lines Digital Stamp Emo Springtime and the flowers are hand made by Petal Lu.  I started with a plain white linen card and printed the digital image directly onto it, the image was coloured with distress inks.  A circle was die cut from a piece of card slightly smaller than the card, stitched round the edge and attached to the card with sticky fixers.  The flowers were grouped together and fastened to the bottom of the aperture.  The sentiment was printed on the computer, cut to size and stitched round before attaching to the card and adding three crystals.

This is a narrow DL card featuring another image from Just Some Lines called Emo Hello World.   I have printed the card with the image and some additional flowers and leaves. The image was coloured with Promarker pens and Petal Lu flowers added over the printed flowers.   Unfortunately the photos are a little dark due to the dull weather and the flowers do not represent the correct colourings,  so pop over to Petal Lu and have a look at the beautiful flowers she has on offer, the colours are amazing.

There will be more inspiration from the Design Team next Monday.

I think that the simple layouts make both the cards gorgeous. I love the little girl holding the bird on the branch, and how you've framed her in the aperture with the flowers beneath.
