Created Byhand Challenge

The theme for this week's challenge over at Created Byhand is Spring Fever/Pastels. I just love this Anais Nin quote. Right now things are still tightly in the bud here in the northeast Tennessee mountains but it won't be long before things burst into flower.

The quote was cut out using Spellbinders Small Deckled Mega Rectangle #4. The background layer was brayered on white glossy cardstock using Kaleidacolor Bouquet inkpad. It was cut out using Spellbinders Curved Rectangles Mega #6. The flower was cut from a scrap of cream Embossed Paper. I used a Q-tip and the Kaleidacolor inkpad to color the flower. The base care measures 5x7".

Welcome Spring!
