Blossom Tree

I think I must have nearly every image that has ever been released by Liz over at Pink Petticoat and it's about time that I started to use some of them.

This delightful image is called Blossom Tree, I have coloured it with my ProMarkers and cut it out with a Sellbinders die.  The Papers are also from Pink Petticoat, including the solid ones, the sentiment is from LOTV and the button and string is from my stash.

The die cut flower and leaves are a Marianne die.  I have added some wink of stella clear glitter to the flowers on the tree but you can't see it in the photographs.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Creative Need Challenge 18 - Signs of Spring
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge 63 - Spring
That Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes/Easter

Makes me smile!

I have made this card for the challenge at Less is More,  the theme is Makes me smile!, thankfully not one layer this week.

I've had this From the Heart image stored away for some time and every time I look at it it makes me smile, I think it's the look in his eyes and the perspiration from the heat of that candle!

I coloured him with ProMarkers and kept it really simple with just a sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Take Flight set.  I think this card may be going to my nieces husband, I hope it makes him smile.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
