This week's theme over at AAA Cards is:
The colors of Springtime are bright and fun, fair and delicate. 
All shades of Lovely
Have fun and keep it CAS.

Spring finally seems to be arriving, so I was inspired to pull out my Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds images.  I embossed them on vellum with lime green EP, and colored them on the back of the vellum with Copics.  This is the first time I have tried this technique and I love the way it yields such a soft look.

 Please head over to the AAA Cards Blog to see the wonderful work of the AAA Cards DT and show them some love.  Get your craft on, and join us for the challenge!

My layout was inspired by this week's wonderful Freshly Made Sketch.

I am also linking to this week's The Pink Elephant - Use Pastel Colors on your project.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Your colourful vellum flower clusters on the tilted panel are smile-making delights, Stephanie. A card guaranteed to make a friend feel ultra-special. I'm completely helpless when it comes to vellum, so seeing you work magic with it is a treat! Your comments on my TPE card had me happy dancing! Thank you! The flowers are stamp/die cuts from Uniko: Beautiful Blooms. I love it! I find making flower clusters a challenge (another thing to practice), so this bloom is a perfect solution! Stamp, die cut and ta dahhh...gotta love it when a product does nearly all the work! Happy Tuesday!
