This week at Card Crafter's Circle our challenge for you is:

Buds, Blooms and Blossoms .... show us flowers!

We are happy to welcome back this week's sponsor MICHELLE PERKETT STUDIOS! Michelle so skilfully presents a huge collection of mermaids, fairies, people, and with various images in between!  They will delight you, so we hope you avail yourself of her designs!

Our random prize winner will receive their choice of one of the gorgeous images showcased by our design team in this challenge post!  We are thrilled to have MPS sponsoring our challenges... because the images are so beautiful... and because they will always bring a smile to your face!

When I saw this image (Rose Bouquet), my first thought was "Watercolors".  I just thought it would be an amazing image to pull my paints out for.  

I printed the image onto watercolor paper, and used the same paper as a card base.  This card has a great texture and weight to it because of that.  My paints would up being a bit thick for the paper, however.  

Be sure to stop by Card Crafter's Circle to see what the rest of the design team came up with using the other yummy images up for grabs this week!

  • Watercolor Paper
  • My Minds Eye In Bloom paper pack
  • Rose Bouquet digi from MICHELLE PERKETT 
  • Martha Stewart corner punch
  • Jolee's Boutique pearl border
  • Jolee's Boutique dimensional stickers
