The look of Innocence

Hello and thanks for visiting today, hasn't it been a wonderful week weather wise.  I'm afraid I've been a bit absent from the craft room spending long hard days in the garden tidying up and cutting back. Today it's too windy s so I've managed a couple of hours fun and used my new Generation Redux stamps from Artistic Outpost that I bought on sale at Quixoticpaperie a couple of weeks ago.
I went with soft shades for my young innocent girl using Spun Sugar with a  touch of Bundled sage and Tumbled glass DIs.  The background was inked, spritzed and stamped with the small background flower.
I used the sentiment from the Think and Wonder set. I did add some Glamour Dust to the flower on the main image.
I am entering this at:
  Artistic Outpost - Show us your Art April challenge
Off now to do a bit catching up with everyone.

I don't blame you for taking advantage of nice weather and working in the yard! Here it will get too hot to be outside, so I have been doing the same! I love how delicate this card is. So lovely and perfect for Springtime! Nice to see that you have shared with us at AO! Hugs!
