spring is here ;-)



It really is a beautiful day the sun is shining, clear blue skies, it really is showing up my dirty windows :-/ ha ha I have made this card to fit in with several challenges, well 5 actually :-)
I followed the lovely skech on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge, we are also asked to make our own buttons, I made the 3 in the centre of the flowers using shrink plastic which I coloured with pearlescent chalk. This also qualifies for the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge which is masking, and the Daring Cardmakers Challenge which is 'Patchwork'. I used the colour sceme on The Pink Elephant Challenge which is pink/green/brown. The theme on the Cupcake Challenge is 'Spring', well I think this is a 'spring' looking card :-)
Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
