Spring Has Sprung....



Good morning followers old and new and all you lovelies out in blogland.  March has us thinking of Spring, or rather hoping the weather will start to brighten up a little.  The daffodils have pushed their heads through the cold ground to giving us a show of colour, they look so pretty and brighten up the garden on the dull days we are having.

So onto this month's challenge over at The Crafty Bloggers Network.  There are two sponsors this month, Just some Lines Digital Stamps and Petal Lu Flowers run by Lucinda Lucker, and the theme is Spring or Pastel.  Check out the Crafty Bloggers Network challenge page for more details on the sponsors, the challenge, and the fabulous DT Team cards.

 

Now on to my DT card featuring the cute "Happy Day" Just Some Lines image and the very pretty hand made Petal Lu flowers.

The edges of a 15cm square white card were rounded before attaching  patterned paper (from my stash, yet another freebie with a mag) and sewing round the edges. The butterfly and flower border was cut using my Silhouette and the Petal Lu flowers were added to give a Spring like appearance.  The dress was paper pieced with a piece of the patterned paper and the rest of the image coloured with promarkers, the edges were coloured with DI to match the distressing on the papers and sewn round before attaching to the card. the sentiment was printed on the computer and a butterfly drawn in the corner, this was sewn round and attached to the card.

The dull afternoon has changed into a beautiful sunny one, Spring must be on the way!!
