Snowdrops are falling....

On my head...not really, nor is rain...but my Snowdrops are blooming!! YAY, spring is just around the corner, and then summer. Do you notice a common theme with my posts (I'll give you a hint...SUMMER!!!) I can't wait for it! Well seeing my gajillion ( I really do have that many) snowdrops made me smile and think of summer and I decided to make a "summery" card...and who better than Gardenia Greenthumb from Stamping Bella!

(ok...I'm gritting my teeth right now...I tried yesterday to publish this and my picture kept getting turned it is now..I thought if I came back to it today it would be fixed..NOT!!! So just tip your head to the right and pretend it is...kay??!!)

Stamped with memories Black Ink on Fabriano water colour paper, she is coloured with SU's Almost Amethyst, Tangerine Tango and Certainly Celery. I used CTMH's carnation for the pink. The base layer is Amost Amethyst with DCWV glitter stack on top. I added a scallop edge in CTMH Carnation with a small strip of Marigold Morning on top....I only realized after I was done colouring that the Marigold was a better match for the patterned paper. I glued some small Primas along the scalloped edge and added some Hero Arts gemstones to the centre of the flowers. Some more gemstones in pink highlighted the spots on her top. She's a little busier than my ususal cards...but very summery don't ya think??
