MARCH CCC

I'm trying to keep ahead of the game with a2z design team posts and other stuff in my life - so made my card for Deb's March card chain challenge - I used the great sketch, colors and the friendship theme to make a card for Taunya.  These challenges from Deb are such a fun way to meet new friends from all over the world! -  plus she always has fabulous colors, an easy sketch and several themes from which to choose.
Used Altenew's layered painted flowers (stamped with HA butter bar, Memento dandelion, PTI sweet blush and melon berry), HA's new Hello Stamp & Cut, and MME striped paper.  The little clear gemstones are from Hero Arts (such a great value and the perfect accent)!  I find it much easier to color the leaves on this Altenew stamp by watercoloring with two shades of green ink rather than stamping.  Think I will make several of this design minus the sentiment just to have on hand for a quick card - the new Hero Arts stamp & cuts - Happy, Congrats, and Thanks would all work well with this design. 

Thanks for visiting and and always enjoy reading your kind comments.  Betty
