Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge # 12

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challenge.  This week our challenge is to create a card in a Spring theme.  I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for Spring, warmer weather, and flowers emerging.


I just adore the Sparkle Wheelbarrow image!  The abundance of flowers just shout Spring to me!  And coloring this image was a LOT of fun.  I used the new Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup paper as my inspiration and basis for my colors.

TIP: What I like to do when I purchase a new pack of paper is look through my Copic markers to match the colors to the patterns in the paper.  I list all the matching colors on a sticky-back notepad and stick right to the paper pack.  I save time when I create each time with that particular patterned paper.
To give my flowers a little shimmer, I added several colors of Viva Pearl pens - and they were all a perfect match!!!  I used a Maya Road kraft envelope and a fun paperclip to round out the design.
 I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration:
