Crafty Ann's #61 Spring into Spring

It's time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's and the theme is "Spring into Spring".

The Host of Daffodils image and all the papers are from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. I've digitally pieced the image and decoupaged it for dimension. Border punch is from Martha Stewart and was one of my purchases at the Secc last week, I've sewed gold thread around the edges.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see Ann and the teams creations, you won't be disappointed.
