Spring Friends - IAS #86

Hello my friends, and Happy Sunday. Happy Father's Day to husbands, brothers, uncles, sons, cousins. I hope you are all doing well as we move into the summer season and still wearing masks and social distancing. Numbers have gone up recently here in Texas so be careful out there.

Today I am sharing a card for the International Art & Soul fortnight challenge. The theme of this challenge is Blue as the Main Color, which was chosen by our DT Teamie, Jane. I must admit that blue has not always been a favorite color of mine, but it tends to grow on you. I wanted my card to be festive and summery, so I chose a pretty image with flowers. I've gotten away from using flowers on my cards lately and really want to use them more.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Kraftin Kimmie - Spring Friends
  • Sentiment - One of my Cardmaker magazines
  • Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Bayou Breeze; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye - Gnome Sweet Gnome
  • Accessories - Classic Circle Die; Scallop Die; blue seam binding ribbon; Recollections and Prima - Flowers; Leaf Die
  • Copic Markers - B0000, B000, B00, B02; E50, E51, E53; G21, G24; R20, R21, R46; T4, T10; Y11, Y15, Y23
As the sentiment says, I hope your day is great and that you'll take a few minutes and pop on over to the International Art & Soul challenge page to see what the rest of the design team has created. Get your stamps and inks out and create something and join in the fun. You could be chosen as the winner or one of the Top 3.


  1. What a gorgeous card Maggie - love the soft blues and how you have so delicately coloured the wee girls dress
    Stay safe

  2. Maggie, this is such a sweet card - too cute!

  3. This is adorable! There was a time I didn't use much blue, either, but now I seem to use it quite a lot. Love that cute little girl. Cases seem to be increasing most everywhere. I don't know if we'll ever be rid of this thing.

  4. Love this Maggie and so sorry blue is not your happy colour, hope it grows on you more and more :) :) Have to admit I could quite happily be surround by blue and purple all the time but totally avoid red, yellow, orange ROFL. Your card turned out beautifully, you perfectly captured the Summer feel :) xxxxxx
