I entered into an atc swap for one atc.  It is a paired swap, so I asked my partner, whom I didn't know, what they would like as a theme and she said, 'being as it's coming up to Easter, how about spring / floral', so this is what I came up with.

The background is created using Derwent Artbars from the pastel section.  I then stamped a script over the top using picket fence distressed stain.  The main image is from Crafty individuals plate CI 185.  I inked the stamp with various colours of distress stain.  I added a pearl gem to the centre of the main flower and three top right.

I am entering this Atc into this weeks Pan Pastel challenge, which has a theme of Easter.
