Bring In Spring

Hello and welcome to this month's Just Inklined Blog Hop. Our host this month is Jeni and her theme choice is "Bring In Spring".

I made a very simple card using this beautiful Hydrangea image available here at La Pashe. I coloured it in with Promarkers and used some matching card for contrast. Finished it off with a few score lines using my Hougie board and some white pearls.

If you're following the hop in the right order you should have arrived here from Meesh and from here you need to pop over to Cathy and see what little beauty she's got in store for you.

In case you get lost here's the hop in the correct order.

Jeni
Jak
Debbie
Toni
Meesh
Karen (me)

Joyce

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend .. I know I did (thanks Samantha xx)
See you soon xx

This is just beautiful. This looks very spring-like. I like the crisp white likes and it brings out the gorgeous flower and color of the flower.
