Spring in Texas!!!

Today is the 15th and that means another Duel!  Debby is the Dazzler Hostess this month and she lives in Texas.
Well, couldn't we all use a road trip ANYWHERE after all of this stay at home isolation?  I know that I would love to get a little Springtime in Texas right about now.
Turns out that Bluebonnets bloom profusely in the Spring in Texas so that is the theme for this duel.  Here's my card with the lovely image and papers sent by Debby:
Image is from Deadbeat Designs, stamped with Color Box Royal Blue Pigment Ink. 

Designer papers are from Paper Studio.  Ribbons and pearls from Offray.

Blue gems are from Parklane.

Image is colored with my Prisma Pencils, not blended with Gamsol.
(Still searching for my other pencils)

I really love everything about this kit, Debby!  

Sure wish I could see the Bluebonnets in person...maybe next year!

Thank you for the burst of Spring Debby!  Stay home, stay safe!

Oh Darlene this is stunning - love how you have coloured and used the image, and the background, especially the ribbon treatment, is perfect.
Stay safe

Oh my! What a beauty, Darlene! This card is full of delightful details - even those knots. WOW!

Darlene, your card is lovely! Your coloring really pops on the paper! The ribbon has the extra texture with the knots. Nice job!

Wow! Darlene, your card is fantastic from the brilliant bluebonnet image to the design using those terrific dsp and use of ribbon and cord!!

Lovely card. Yes, bluebonnets are our state flower and it is against the law to pick them. When Lyndon Johnson was President, his wife, Lady Bird Johnson decided to spruce up Texas and had wildflowers (bluebonnets) seeded all over the edges of highways throughout the state. People drive for miles just to see them every Spring.
