Planting Some Love

Gee, can you believe it's Wednesday already and the first week of November.  I don't know about you all but our weather is crazy here.  Yesterday it was almost 80 and today it's in the 50's, rainy, possibly snow tonight, and colder than I'd prefer....  Needed a break from Christmas cards and I had never colored this adorable image from Bells'n Whistles so decided to "think" spring cause I'm not a big fan of winter.

I made this card for 2 challenges today,  Bells'n Whistles Pins and Pearls Challenge and Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge, Pink, Purple, Pearls, and Pretties.

Close up of front


The stamped image is from Bells'n Whistles by Elisabeth Bell named "Planting Some Love".  Flowers are WOC as is the metal corner and pins.  She is colored with Copics.  The butterflies are a MS Butterfly Punch with pearls from stash added.  The bows on each side of the sentiment are also from stash.  Don't have a clue what paper pack the DP is out of but I think it's from Kaiser Kraft.  So dark and dreary here and apologize the picture is not all that great.  Light Box is on my Christmas Wish List...

Thanks so much for stopping by and I sure hope to see  you again soon.
