Crafting for all Seasons #72 "Spring into Spring"

Good morning all.

Another gorgeous spring day yesterday...had thought we'd be going out to see my sister in law but plans changed so I got to spend some more time in the craft room! I'm really enjoying having my mojo back :) Today's card was made whilst my mojo was missing and I'm not that happy with it...I think I should have flipped either the image or the paper before printing then the card may have looked like it came together, if you know what I mean lol!!

Today it's time for our next at CFAS and this time the theme is "Spring into Spring". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet who gave the DT images and papers to work with.

I've used Butterfly Solace from Floppy Latte Designs and a backing paper from Painted Garden Pack 1 by Panda Bear Designs. The image has been coloured with promarkers and highlighted with Glamour Dust. Die from Spellbinders. Butterfly from my stash.

Fabulous Sponsor 2014
