Clear It Out Challenge–Spring Flowers

Spring has sprung and it’s time for another Clear It Out Challenge.  This week’s theme is … you guessed it … Spring!  The stash item chosen for this challenge is flowers.  I found the cutest image for this card at Bugaboo’s store.  Bugaboo is offering up 7 free digis to the winner of this challenge.  Isn’t that awesome!

We have one more sponsor and it’s one of our CIO design team members, Karen Patterson.  She’s offering an assortment of 36 flowers in different sizes and fibers, yarn crochet thread, bakers twine and cotton fibers.  Package value is $12 to $15.

I decided to make a square card for this challenge.  I used cardstock and paper from Michael’s Recollection collection.




I used my copic markers to color in the little bee girl.  The ink from my printer wasn’t completely dry so it smudged a little :-(

The ribbon that is threaded through the scalloped border has printed flowers on it and I attached a fabric flower to the bottom corner of the image in keeping with this week’s theme.  There is also a flower in the image itself.   The sentiment was made by me.



Here is the inside of the card …



You can find more information about this challenge on the Clear It Out Challenge Blog.  I’d love to see you join us.
