Buds and Blossoms

It is Saturday here and my feet are finally touching the ground after a wonderful time away at the Spellbinders Retreat - you may have seen my posts sharing some of it with you - if not here is a link to Part I and Part II .

  I am getting back into the 'creative zone' and will have lots to share with you over the coming weeks - in the meantime I am sharing a card I created before I left.  I have used one of the wonderful printed sheets from Crafty Secrets

The divine Spiral Blossom One Spellbinders® Shapeabilities®, adding colour using
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Morocco and an IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™.  The greenery is from the Foliage Spellbinders Shapeabilities® - both dies have been cut/emboss using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting & Embossing Machine.

This card is for the following challenges:
Creative Corner - Anything Goes 
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes 
Totally Papercrafts - Favorite Colors 
Card and Scrap - Anything Goes 
Crafters Companion - Animals
House of Gilli - Bright Colors/Anything Goes 
Just For Fun - Anything Goes 
Sunshine Mail - Anything Goes
Happy Campers - Summer 
Southern Girls - Things that begin with F (Flower)
