Flowers at Make My Monday

Hello there, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Ours was a bit noisy as my hubby has now fitted a house alarm so there was a lot of beeping involved in setting it up! The test run was deafening so I think any burglar would run a mile if he set it off!!!
We have a great new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday with the theme of Flowers in celebration of Spring and all the lovely trees in blossom at the moment.
My inspiration is a clean and simple card as I wanted to show off the beautiful image I used for my creation.

I've used a gorgeous pansy corner image which is part of a set of 3 by Aurora Wings. I always think of pansies in the Spring and in fact saw rather a lot on Friday as I visited a client who owns a garden centre and there were tons in one of the greenhouses. They have the most amazing farm shop I've ever seen too!
I printed the image on to smooth cartridge paper and painted it with Aquamarkers before trimmimg it to a square. I stamped the birthday sentiment (Flonzcraft) on with Archival Jet Black ink directly on the paper and then added the panel to a blue mat before sticking it to a cream card blank.

Have a great day and a lovely week.
Fliss xx
