March in the Northern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of September in the Southern Hemisphere. In the Northern hemisphere, the beginning of the meteorological spring is March. In the Southern hemisphere, the beginning of the meteorological autumn is March. So this month we are asking you to create a project based on either Spring or Autumn.

Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB20. You have until March 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

I love spring time! I love when trees and flowers start to bloom turning naked trees and brown grass back into luscious green! So I thought my card should feature the the Seeds of Friendship stamp set with flowers inside.

I stamped the Seed frame in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Classic White cardstock. The frame was masked and the small image from Sweet Peas was stamped twice inside. The image was colored with Copic Markers ( Petals: RV10, RV52, RV55, YR30   Leaves: G40, G43, G46   Label: YR30, 1/5 YR31, YR31, E33, E37   Background: B0000, B91) and cut out.

I kept the rest of the card very simple. I cut and embossed the card base with the Scalloped Frame and adhered the image on it. That was it. No ribbon, no rhinestones. I don’t do this very often, but I thought it worked for this card.

Check out what the rest of the design team has created!

What I like to do this month to help Spring come along, is to cut Pussy Willows & Forsythias, bring them in and stick them both in vases full of water and watch it happen! They both will bloom, and nothing says SPRING like those 2. Try it! Have a wonderful day!
