Cheery Lynn Designs - Think Spring!



Good Morning! :)  I hope everyone had a brilliant Easter break :)

The weather here was pants, and we had hail, and lots of rain, but it didnt stop us taking a trip out to a local ruined castle and getting proper drenched! lol.

My card today is for our new challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog where this week our theme is 'Think Spring'.  I chose to go with some bright and zingy colours for this.

I hand-stitched Fizzy Moon and Prima papers, and layered on top English Tea Party Doily,  B117 - Fanciful Flourish and B133 - Lace Light Deco Border to give me a great base to add extra leaves and flowers to.

I used a gorgeous Sugar Nellie digi image called Daffy Pip, and layered this on top of the English Tea Party Doily cut from Centura Pearl card.  It cut like a dream! :)

Other dies used on this card are:

B155 - Large Rose - these flower dies are so versatile I made daisies with them! :)

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Simon Says Stamp - April Showers/Spring Flowers
Prairie Fairy Fridays - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday - gorgeous photo inspiration
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
Hanna & Friends - Easter or Spring
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Spring is in the Air


I hope you find time to play along this week, and if you would like to see more inspiration checkout both the challenge blog and the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog where there is daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT.
