Feeling spring

Hello there! I hope your week started off well. Mine did. :) I woke up in a nice sunny day, managed to do some crafting and also got to the store to do some shopping. :)

For today's card I used just bright colours. Spring is finally coming to town so it seemed like a good choice. After all, sooner or later I expect to see such colours all around me too. ;)


I'm sorry because the picture isn't the best. It looked ok in the camera and I didn't check it in my computer til evening when it was already too late to take another one - at least too late to take a good one. *sigh* I'll try to do a better job next time.

The lovely girl with a flower is a stamp from Ladybug and friends. I colored her with Faber Castell pencils, Jolly pencils and Promarkers. The swirl was made with Marianne Design die. I made the flower myself - I wanted to try something new. ;) For butterflies I simply used punch. I used vellum for butterflies, but now I'm thinking I should use something else so that they would stand out a bit more. Hmmmm ... Lesson for the next time. The green paper I used for background is from Provo Craft and the other green paper (the one I used to "frame" the image) is from Sizzix' Little sizzles (Watercolors). And so is the checked paper.

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:
Hanna and friends: Sketch
Paper romance: Vellum (I used vellum for butterflies)
Stampin' for the weekend: Springtime
Sir stampalot: Spring is in the air (use green, yellow and blossom pink)

  4. So pretty hun! Cute image and super colours, love your flower. I think the vellum butterflies are fab, the delicate nature of vellum is perfect for their gossamer wings. I too hope to see Spring soon, we have ice again this morning! Hugs, Sxx
