SHOPPING OUR STASH #395 - May Flowers

Hello and welcome crafty peeps!
It's time for another challenge at
and as the subtitle suggests, we'd like to see
flowers on your projects.

Here's my offering:

and the inside:

I've mentioned in earlier posts that I spent the holiday season
coloring up a lot of images. This is one of them. I miraculously
found some card stock that matched perfectly with the purple pencils
I colored with. Score! I broke out a much neglected corner punch
to add a bit of detail to one corner. A few rhinestones for sparkle
finishes my card. I hope you find some time this 
fortnight to join in our flower challenge at Shopping Our Stash!
Looking for more ideas? Simply visit the blogs of my

  1. This is beautiful, Chris! I have this image and it never looks that pretty when I color it. I actually had it in my "give away" box. I guess I will have to rethink that! I also love the sentiment! Nicely crafted!

  2. Love this so much! Great sentiment too, Jo x

  3. those pansies look so real, I almost thought they were stickers. Beautifully composed card, and the corner punch is perfect to balance the flowers. AWESOME

  4. I adore Pansies and Violas, these little flowers look like they are always smiling, with their little flower heads turned up as you pass by.
    Your card is gorgeous Chris, Aurora Wings have some of the most beautiful digis in the market, I'm so happy you shared this one with us.
    Sending hugs.
    PS. Can I ask you what kind of ink you have on your printer? Or do you let the ink dry before you color your images? Sometimes, the ink bleeds a little even if I'm coloring with the Prismacolor pencils.

  5. This is gorgeous, and beautifully coloured, those pansies look real. Thank you for playing along with the Craft Stamper challenge xx

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
