Pastel Spring Banner Card (A Random Fan image)

Ahh, my last card for the evening, that makes 3 in all. I hope you've enjoyed seeing them or have been inspired in some way or another. I love being inspired by everyone's blogs, sometimes when I have no mojo I go searching for inspiration and always find it, sometimes too many ideas and gorgeous creations that I have to balance my head up the stairs to my craft area so they won't fall out my ears haha. 

I used a cute little image from A Random Fan for this card, aren't they so sweet? The hair colour is one of my faves - I used copic markers - E29, E25, E21, Y20 and Y11 or something very similar. I love adding the yellow (Y11) at the end to give it a golden feel.

Do you see the gorgeous green leaves near the flowers? They are from a gorgeous vine we have at Flourish with a Bling. They have 10 leaves so you can cut them all off or keep as a vine and as a bonus it has a little vine too. It comes in 3 different green shades and black. We have 50% off in April so the whole set is less than USD $2 at the moment. I hope you'll check out our website (click on the name above).
