Here is my project using JustRite products from Joans Gardens.  I kept it simple in order to showcase the beautiful hibiscus bloom that is just one of the images in JustRite Mother Nature's Gifts Set.  I stamped the image and border with Memento ink.  Colored the flower with Copics, added some Stickles to the stamen.  I also colored the border with Copics and added some flat-backed pearls I colored with the Copic marker to match.  I stamped the sentiment from the same JustRite set in sections to the upper and lower panels.  I taped off the part I didn't want inked so I could stamp the portion I wanted to, stamped directly to the DP.  The Dew Drops are a very pale yellow.  Easy peasy, and ready for spring! :) 


Thank you for being a part of our blog hop.  Dont miss out on the chance to win the amazing Justrite prize package! Create your own project with JustRite products and enter the challenge at Joan's Gardens.  Also, be sure to see the other gorgeous creations and comment on each of the fourteen blogs in the blog hop for a chance to win an additional prize from Joan
