Spring card

Hi all

I have had a lovely day off today and even managed to make my first spring (as in the style) card! Incy Wincy Designs challenge this week is for "Fancy Folds" so this fits in with their challenge and as it was ANOTHER card challenging my limited creative skills I am also entering it into the Crafty Cardmakers challenge of "challenging yourself".

I used this cute digi image from CJ at Cowgirl Up stamps who is having a DT call!

The lime green and black colour combo with the added extra of flowers was picked by the lovely Jude for the Creative Inspirations challenge. This is not a colour combo I would normally use but it is really zingy and works so well!



Papers are from a magazine last year, they are a little on the shiny side and I don't normally use these types of papers but the colours were perfect! Flowers are from my stash. The sentiment stamp is from Personal Impressions - Fairy Silhouette set. I used the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. Image coloured with pencils and promarkers. Sparkled up her little hat with glamour dust.

As you can buy Cowgirl Up Stamps over at Stitchy Bear Stamp store I will enter this as my third and final entry onto the One Stitch at a Time challenge!
