Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 17 March 2017

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "EASTER/SPRING".

The topic for the Design Team this week was "pearls or gems".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
For my Spring-like birthday card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Blue Sea Illusion".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers.

The backing papers I have used are Sweet Dixie Spring Sentiments papers.

The backing papers and the image I have all machine stitched around.

I have finished the card off with some ribbon, lace, flowers, die-cut sentiment  and gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
