PTI Princesses Challenge- Something NEW!

I have finally found time to play along with the PTI Princesses blogging group I'm a part of and this last challenge was issued by the ever talented Bethie J! She commissioned us to create something "new" in honor of spring...so I chose to use new products, namely stamps:) I played with my new Blooming Button Bits set and really love this set. I stamped the flowers (which are from With Sympathy) directly onto my pattern paper and colored them in with my Prisma color pencils. For my border I used the largest leaf in the Blooming Button set and trimmed it out, love the look of it with the stiched border and how you can make it any color you wish. I also stamped over a couple of the leaves with the smaller single leaf to give more depth and detail to the focal image. I hope you like how it came out:)

This is a gorgeous card. I really like the little lace accent along the bottom. It really gives it a "vintagy" feel. Thanks for participating in our challenge!
