Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Spring is in the Air

 Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenges and this fortnight we have a fabulous theme of  Spring is in the Air.  I have used the gorgeous Strawberry Girl by Norma Fickel for my card - she is available at a reduced price right now but is on clearance so hurry if you want her as when she's gone she's really gone!  I was really inspired by the gorgeous photo and colour challenge at Colour Create of pink, sage, blue and cream/white - such a gorgeous spring combination!  I'm also entering the Wild Orchid Crafts bingo challenge - I have used the line pins, buttons and ribbon/lace.  Sorry about the rubbish photos, I'm really struggling to find a light enough place in my house these days - the sun is shining brightly today and this is the best I could get!!  I'm thinking of getting a light tent but have heard mixed reviews - if any of you use one and love it I'd be really grateful for advice!
 I coloured Strawberry Girl with copics and added stickles to the strawberry vines and seeds as well as her headband.  I inked around the edge with victorian velvet distress ink.  The gorgeous lace is a scrap from my stash.
 The gorgeous ribbon is from Whiff of Joy as is the gold pin - love Katharina's pins as they don't have sharp points on them!  The button is from my stash and the twine is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  I gave the card a pretty edge with some fancy edging scissors that were actually free with a magazine - can't go wrong there can you lol!
 I added a mix of flat paper flowers and a gorgeous rose and blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts - couldn't resist adding a touch of stickles to them too!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy Challenge!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning spring cards!  Thanks for looking! x
