Spring Pansies

Hello everyone - today is Mid-week Motivation day at Make My Monday and if you head on over there you will find a step by step tutorial on how I made my flowers for today's card.
Firstly here is a close up of my flower - it's a pansy

It's made using the Stampin' Up Butterfly punch. I also used Perfect Plum and So Saffron card stock along with Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant ink. The veins were added with a Concord Crush Stampin' Write marker.
I made three of these fabulous flowers and added them to a card - take a look

The tags are made with Crumb Cake card stock and the Large Tag punch and just elongated a little. The base is Whisper White and the sentiment is from My Friend. I found a few scraps of ribbon to tie in my tags.
I hope you like this folks as it's going in to this week's Simply Stampin' challenge which is 'Totally Tags'. Also St. Luke's Charity Cards Challenge - Spring into Spring and The Kraft Journal - Anything Goes.
Back soon - Jacqueline xx
