Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Seasons

The theme for this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge as chosen by Donna is:


You can either interpret this as one season, or as all four seasons. After weeks and weeks of making lots of frosty looking cards...I decided to choose the fresher colours of 'Spring' for my card. Inspired by this week's weather...I've used 'Willow with Umbrella' (by Whiff of Joy) to represent 'April showers'. I watercoloured her in shades of blue & green to match the watery looking paper (from the 'Phoebe' collection by BasicGrey). I embossed the central panel using my 'Tiny Bubbles' folder, and added a couple of Prima flowers, adhesive pearls and a sentiment (stamp also by Whiff of Joy).

As usual the rest of the design team have worked their magic, and created some fabulous samples to inspire make sure you pop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog.
