Allsorts Challenge 463 and New Papercrafters' Linky Party

Good morning and thanks so much for stopping by! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts, and as always the linky for this week's Papercrafters' Linky Party has been posted at the end of this post, so do scroll down if you'd like to share a papercraft at the Linky Party this week.

It's my turn again this week to host the Allsorts challenge and fitting for the month of April I chose the theme of Spring Flowers or Showers. (Please note: this theme is for Allsorts challenge, not my Linky Party where it's always Anything Papercrafts!)


I did some inking and  masking for today's card on glossy card stock. A home made mask was used to create the hill, a mix of blue inks were used for the sky. The silhouette girl image is from a retired set by Stampin Up (Million Dollar Moments). I've heat embossed it using versamark ink and detail embossing powder. The plants around the image are all from the Penny Black set "Sprigs" and the sentiment is from the retired Stampin Up set Summer by the Sea.  The raindrops and little flowers are from the same set Million Dollar Moments by Stampin Up. I decided to add a few extra blooms, punched with Stampin Up's old flower trio punch using pink card stock.

We're giving away two wonderful stamps to one lucky winner this week at Allsorts, I hope you'll come play along with us for your chance to win. All challenge details can be found HERE on the Allsorts challenge blog
