This post is for Flourishes Noon Time Challenge! Yep they are having their release this week. Beautiful Calla Lillie's yesterday and today the cutest mini flowers, fruits and seasonal items you can imagine. You really have to go check out the DT's cards on this one. They made swags, wreaths and borders all so cute.
The challenge was to design a card from the inspiration photo below.

This looks very vintage and elegant to me. So I used the colors and the oval shapes. Since I really didn't have any dp that fit the bill I decided to try something new. I used my TH Black Soot ink and gently went over the raised part of my Textile CB folder. I set the card stock on it and used my brayer over the back to help pick up the ink.
My image is from Spring is Sprung.
That is it for today. Time to get those puppies up! :)
Hope you have a great day.

You are so smart, your bg is beautiful and so vintage looking. I love your card...such a sweet petite image. I love their inspiration photo as well. I need to check out the new stamps. I am working on reorganizing my stamps and room some and haven't had time to look at anything.

Love how the textile folder looks, and the lovely little blue bells (pink bells!) are so pretty too! Thanks for playing along with us in the Noon-Time challenge at Flourishes!
