Spring colours

Hello lovely people,

It's been a lovely weekend and I was even in my shorts for a walk in the sunshine on Saturday afternoon!

Now I have some fab news to share...

I was delighted to be picked as guest designer for Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge and this month the theme is...


To me this means fresh green and pretty soft pastels, and you know, I think Spring is really here now :-)

I have been admiring the Whimsy stamps Sylvia Zet images for quite a while now so I chose one to use for this card and I think it's safe to say I have a new stamp addiction!

Heres' another peek at the pretties I popped on here...yes, it's those butterflies again!

Card recipe;
Image: Dyanne - Whimsy stamps (from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but currently unavailable)
DP: Vintage Spring Basics - Maja Design (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Dies: heart flower lace - Magnolia Doohickey
Sentiment: clear mini sentiments - Kaisercraft
Charm: small butterfly charm - The Ribbon Girl

Copic colours;
Skin: E000/00/21/11/04 & R20
Hair: E41/43/47
Dress / hairband / shoes: BV00/02/04 & R81/83/85
