It's Springtime

Hi everyone, I wanted to share a card with you which I've just made. I made it with a couple of challenges in mind...





I've coloured the gorgeous House Mouse stamped image using Copics before cutting it out with a Spellbinder Opulent Oval die. The papers are Forever Friends and all the distressing is Tim Holtz Spun Sugar. I've added some hot fix pearls, some ribbon from my stash and a couple of Cheery Lynn butterflies. The sentiment is cut using part of the Spellbinders Ornamental Tags Three die and has been curled slightly and attached with silicon glue. Here's a close up of the image...




I would like to enter this for the following:-
House Mouse - Spring 
Joanna Sheen - Spring into spring 
Cheery Lynn - Anything goes 
Make it Monday 
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes Spring 


Thanks for visiting. I suppose I'd better go do some more housework now. Unfortunately it won't do itself and the housework fairies appear to be on strike... See you again soon
Helen xx
