Friend Card Using Ching Chou-Kuik "Spring Clover" with CTMH Products

Hello Friends!  How are you?  I am trying to take time to color and create as much as I can.  It has already turned hot here in Southern CA; so I need to figure out when to exercise.  I prefer walking or riding my bike outside; not doing things indoors.  

I buy digital stamps all the time; but forget I have them.  I saw this Ching Chou-Kuik "Spring Clover PC" in my files and remembered how much I loved it when I first saw it.  This one is a partially colored one; so it was fun working with; especially when the colors used on the image are my favorites.  It comes with one black and white and one partially colored.  

It is hard to photograph lavender and peach.  This photo was a big challenge.  It took me longer to get the colors to show up as their true colors; then it did to color it.  LOL!  I hope you enjoy it.
