Scribbles Designs Challenge #28 Midway Point...Spring Has Sprung

It is the start of a new month and that means that it is time for the midway for the latest Scribbles Designs Challenge.  

There are two whole weeks left for you to come on over and enter. In case you've missed it, the theme this time around for Challenge #28, is Spring Has Sprung

"Under the giving snow blossoms a daring spring." ~Terri Guillemets
The snow is now mostly all gone, here in North America. The grass is turning from shades of brown to green and the trees and flowers are starting to form buds. Yes, spring has finally sprung on this side of the world and not a minute too soon as far as we're concerned! It is high time to break out all your stamps depicting the beauty of the season. Whether you go with a creation featuring botanical elements in full bloom, or simply want to focus on a particular event associated with this time of the year, it is up to you. Just keep in mind that this month, we want to see a project that reflects the true nature of spring.

Entering is super simple!  You do not need to use a Scribbles Designs image; however, if you do, your name gets entered into the draw twice.  You can purchase your Scribbles Designs images HERE or you can also find one for a limited time on the challenge blog HEREAlso, be sure to check out our special Freebie Friday posts as it is another great way to build your Scribbles Designs collection.  You can find the rest of the rules and information regarding winners in the sidebar on the challenge blog.  You have until 9pm PST on May14th to come over and play with us.

Here are my card and all the details... 
General Information:
  • Okay so technically, I'm not sure if a sympathy card really falls into the whole 'spring' thing but our challenge description does state that one can simply create a card featuring botanical elements in full bloom.  Since my flower is definitely in full bloom, I'm thinking it will be okay.
  • This card is for a friend (and her family) who lost her mother in law recently.
  • Once again I thought this image would lend itself nicely to working with my new Inktense watercolour pencils; although, I'm not really pleased with how this one turned out.  I didn't have the colour I wanted so I had to blend two of the colours together but in doing so I had to do it off image on a palette so I didn't exactly get the effect I would have liked.

Digital Image Details: 
  • Flower 1: I really like this simplicity of the pretty rose!  It has been coloured with Inktense Watercolour Pencils.  Click on the name or the watermark below, to head to its location in the store.
  • The ribbon is from my snippets stash.  I believe it is Osprey brand.
  • I created the border using a Recollection's punch purchased at Michael's. 


Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • Both of these wonderful sentiments were created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  I picked each of them up as freebies a while back.  Now while I found one of them in the store, I didn't find the other although it doesn't mean it isn't there.  If you are interested be sure to ask Paulette about whether it is available for purchase.  The 'in my prayers' sentiment is availabile in the "Prayers Enclosed" Vintage Image Transfer and Word Art Set that you can find in the store by clicking HERE or on the watermark below.  To find more great sets in the store, click HERE; and to check out Paulette's blog, click HERE.
