 Here we are at the beginning of a wonderful long weekend...yes, the start of summer. But summer temperatures are not happening here, it is very cool. I had to bring in all my flowers last night because of frost. So with spring/summer on my mind, I tried my hand at the beautiful tutorial Norma did for us on her gorgeous blog. She is such an inspiration for me and has helped me out with all my craft questions! Thanks Norma.
  I coloured up my image with prisma pencils and did both of the images with my favourite pastels! Added lots of glitter and made lots of flowers with Maja papers so everything would match.  Again, all inspired by Miss Norma!

I am going to enter my card into a few challenges:
Creative Moments: Anything Goes
HobbyBooks Designer Challenge: for mom or a Special lady
Scrapper's Delight: Anything Goes
My Mom's Craft Shop: Lots of Layers
Papertake Weekly:Pretty Pastels

Well, hopefully it warms up a bit here! Have a wonderful weekend!
