Purple Woods by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hi everyone!  April is my favourite month of the year because my two sons were born on this beautiful month.  

Every spring, I find it so exciting to see all the greenery come to life.  I also love the morning time symphony carried out by sweet little birds outside my window.  And then, of course, there is the lovely fragrance of flowers, the longer days and all the great spring activities.  So many lovely sights, sounds and smells to enjoy!

I am sharing my latest DT inspiration card made with Ching-Chou Kuik's gorgeous "Purple Woods" image, found here:

I created this card for Ching-Chou's monthly Facebook challenge.
There is also a blog challenge.  
April's theme for both challenges is "Cats and Dogs".  

Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils were used to colour this image.  I made all the flowers. 

Happy Spring to you!  Lori P xx
