Simon Says Stamp DT - Easter/Spring colours

Gosh! Wednesday already! Is it just me or are these weeks flying by?? Of course that means it is time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Challenge and this week our theme is Easter/Spring colours. As always the lovely Heidi is sponsoring the challenge and offering a whopping $50 credit voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store!! Here's my card for the challenge!!

I have used the gorgeous new mini papers by Magnolia - so gorgeous! this one it Turqoise Butterfly. I've distressed the edges and added stickles. I've used the sketch at Truly Scrumptious for my card layout.

I have coloured the image, Hello Little Buttefly, with copics and then paper pieced her boots with some of the butterfly paper and then covered them in glossy accents for that welly boot shine!

I added a mixture of Prima flowers and a small rose from my stash together with a Prima butterfly which I've stickled.

The lace and ribbon are both from my stash and the doily was a gift from a crafty friend. I created the sentiment myself on the PC.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamp's challenge. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's amazing creations! Thanks for looking! x
