Springtime Flowers...

Good morning all and welcome to Friday...and a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog...our new theme is ......

.....Springtime Flowers.....

......and is hosted by the very lovely and very talented Vannessa.

.........we are sponsored by Sweet Lilac Flowers and Marianne Designs...

Here is my inspiration ...

Using some beautiful paper flowers from Sweet Lilac and a Marianne Design....LR0169

This really is a gorgeous design ...and perfect to cut into four and make corners...

I stamped this Wonderful Clarity sentiment onto some yellow card....

And the butterfly three times onto white card...

Added colour with Spectrum Noir pencils and cut them out...

I do love the way the corners look...

This little star stamp just took the plain feeling away from the yellow card...

And look how good the flowers and leaves look...

And here is the finished design...I do hope that you like it...also pop over and see the other wonderful designs from the DT ...... http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk

I am off now to get my craft bag sorted ready for tomorrow's workshops at C.J.Cardcrafts in Stockport, Cheshire...I always have a lovely time when I visit the shop and Glynis looks after me so well....

The crafters who regularly attend have become really good friends and we have a new face book friend coming this week...so I am really looking forward to meeting her...

Enjoy your day all...and have a happy, healthy weekend...

Much love...

Jo. xxxx
