Where's Spring?


 
Hi and Good Morning :)  Alison here today.  Wow! we had some fab entries and yummy creations last week for our Easter Challenge, and this week we are trying to get in the mood for Spring!   I really wanted to make something bright, light and warm as we still have snow here in Scotland, and its fffffreezing! 
 
I used a 6 x 6 white card blank, and stitched Prima Papers onto white American Crafts cardstock.  This same card, and aqua blue bazzil card was used for all the dies on this card, and they came out beautifully. :)
 
I cut the gorgeous Dainty Dutch Deco frame (I love this!) and added fanciful flourish and mini flourish die-cuts, before adding a cute Penny Black image matted onto Scalloped and Square stackers.  I then layered the victorian picket fence on top, and cut out some stunning daisies in various sizes from the daisy strip die - this is such a timesaver!  I layered the daisies and held them together with a brad and then use card-candi over the top to soften the look.  I finally added some smaller daisies, leaves, butterflies, dragonfly and  tag, and finished the look off with some pearls and twine.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to join in this week, theres still plenty of time to enter.  Dont forget to checkout the rest of the talented DT creations over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.

I love the blue and white colors. Simple, clean but very pretty. Love the added touch of the fence and the flowers make it all come together with their layers of petals.
