Addicted to {Spring}

The latest challenge over at Addicted to Stamps is a Theme Challenge and the theme is

SPRING

We are well into Spring here in Australia. There are a lot of Autumn challenges going around so it might be a little refreshing for you to add some bright colours to your projects.

Here is my card -


The flowers I have hand-made. Yes! I hand-made them!! For my first attempt I was really happy. I had just purchased a Scalloped Rolled Rose die. I used my Paper Piercing tool to wrap the paper around then once I had finishd, I used the tool to help bend the leaves down a little. The little butterfly turned out better than expected, too. I have a new stamp and die set (Hero Arts) but I just stamped the small butterfly with Memento Black on some DP and then used the die to punch it out. A little crochet trim was wrapped around the 'bunch' and secured with the butterfly using double sided tape.

The Design Team have once again come up with some wonderful work! Check them out over at the Challenge Blog! Don't forget the DT call is still going!!

Thanks for looking xx
