It's hard to believe the March release has come and gone at Papertrey Ink! It was such a fun release, though! I had so much fun playing with the sets this month and have lots of new cards to share. I thought I would start with one of my favorites. I just love the new Year of Flowers line that Nichole is designing each month. At the end of the year, this is going to be such an amazing collection! This month's flower is daffodils. You may have seen this card on Nichole's blog yesterday. I went a little vintage with my card and love how it turned out. Subdued colors in the flower and lots of sponged ink edges and crocheted lace help create the vintage feel. I used the tea dye duo inks and dark chocolate ink to really dirty up the image and help it look old and worn.
Have a great day!
