Try It Out Tuesday #19 - May Flowers

It’s Tuesday so that means it’s Try It Out Tuesday at Follow Your Heart, Susana’s Custom Art and Card Designs store blog! This week Suzanne, our super Design Team Leader, charged challenged us with using flowers. Well, I can do flowers!

I look out my window and I see some green and brown, but not much color. The weather here in Maine is so strange that you never know when to expect some color to come up. So I made my own! I used “Dear Diary” one of the new adorable stamps from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD), exclusively at Susana's store! I just adore her! She is from the first series entitled "The Hearts and Hugs Collection" and there are also ten Susanaments that just match this new line so perfectly.
She's colored with copics and I used some Azure Smooch on her dress, Shimmerz on her butterfly in her hair and some Flower Soft along the trunk of the tree. Don't you just love that gorgeous Petaloo Mulberry Wild Rose on top? And everyone knows how I love the Retro Paper Pack from Dovecraft, also exclusively at SCACD! Who couldn't get lost in reading and dreaming in your own private garden?! I used to write in my diary along the banks of a creek in our small town when I was growing up in West Virginia. You can go anywhere when you have your thoughts with you!

I hope you enjoy our little bit of flowery spring time being brought to you! Make sure you stop by the store blog and see the other wonderful cards my fellow DT members have in store for you!

Dear Diary by Victoria Case for SCACD's Hearts and Hugs Collection, Susanaments by SCACD, Smooch, Petaloos Mulberry Rose, Bella Baubles, Flower Soft, Retro Paper Pack from Dovecraft, Shimmerz, copics, Jelly Roller Glaze pen,
