0 6 Comments

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog #301.

The theme for this challenge is Watercolouring and / or Spring + A Sentiment.

You can make any type of project such as a card, tag, scrapbook layout, pocket letter, box etc.
The theme must be followed and a sentiment included.

I decided to use a flower image from Ike’s Art called Lilac.

    I particularly love this one Lisa as Lilac is one of my favourite flowers. I have some in my garden but sadly it is almost over.
    I did note though Lisa that your link isn’t to the Lilac (which I managed to find) but to a Daisy Panel. Tis a lovely panel but not Lilac.
