Wishing for Spring...




I think I've had enough of these cold cold days and I am starting to wish for Spring and have noticed I've been so when I looked up at my wall and noticed this already coloured Spring Tilda it inspired me for this card. I have used the wonderful sketch at Friday Sketchers . Tilda is coloured with prismacolours. the papers are a mix of BG and DCWV. The ribbon from my stash and I made from beads I cut off an old butterfly hanger. And the small white flowers under the green ones are from a silk arrangement I recently threw away. I am entering these challenges....Corrosive Challenges - Reuse, reduce, recycle, Crafty Pad - Girly, BasicGrey - BG ITEM and flower power, Gem Of A Challenge -Ribbon and Lace, Tellen's Place - polka dots, Penny's Paper-Crafty – anything goes, Simon Says Stamp - punch, flowers, gems, A Spoonful Of Sugar - Blue and Green, Magnolia Down Under - reduce, reuse, recycle.
