Like a Spring Day....

I'm enjoying the Clean and Simple (CAS) style of card so much at the moment and this card fits into a couple of challenges too, so I'm a happy crafter ! 

The design for this card was inspired by an embossing folder I saw recently.  I used a ball tool and an embossing board to create the debossed lines (which aren't really showing up too well in the piccie sadly).  The snowdrops image is a digi from Papergardenprojects.com and is coloured with Copics before cutting out with a plain circle nestie.  The sentiment is also from the Spring Flowers digi set and I cut it into a simple rectangle and dragged the same green Copic pen around the edges to tie in to the image.  The image was added over a layer cut from SU! Garden Green cardstock with a small scallop circle nestie. 

The sunday challenge on the Craft Mad & Loving It group on Craftbubble has the theme of Snowdrops, so this is perfect to fit the challenge and the Simply Less is More challenge asks for a Spring themed project so it will be a second entry from me for that challenge too.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my latest project, thanks for visiting today.

I can see the debossed lines clearly and love them! They really pull the other elements of your card together and make them a group.

Yes, I agree with icky, the embossed lines really draw your eye to the snowdrops. (I would have stamped the sentiment straight onto the card - but nontheless, it's lovely!)

so very elegant Wynneth and I do so love snowdrops. unfortunately although I plant loads of bulbs, all that ever comes up, if anything at all, is green leaves!

The dramatic lines pull your eye to the corner focal point in such a pleasing way. Great design!

What a fabulous image and I love the idea of the debossed lines drawing the eye in

Isn't this just a perfect image?, I love how you have embossed the lines and made it look like (to me) a ray of sunshine,.

Thanks fro submitting another card Wynneth
The card is great, although I don't think the embossed lines add to the overall effect. It works beautifully without, if you don't mind me saying
See you again
