A cup of Spring Flowers

Good morning all!  Weekend again I swear they are arriving quicker and quicker, Christmas will be here before we know it!!

Today's card is quite a cheery one now that the weather has changed:

I've used a digital image from Ladybug Crafts Ink and coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils.  I have added quite a bit of Stickles to the flowers but you can't see them!!  The papers are First Edition.  The flower is a new Spellbinder's die I got at the NEC. I have cut the image out with a Spellbinder's die and cut and matted the sentiment using Spellbinder's Dies I embossed the corner embellishment with my new WOW EP also from the NEC.  Ribbon, gem and spacer from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Ladybug Crafts Ink - Spots and Stripes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Die Cuts and/or Punches
Fairy Fun Fridays - Spring Fling
Stamping with the Dragon - Spring is Here
Wags n' Whiskers - Say it with Flowers
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday - Spring
Shelly's Images - Stripes
Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes

Well our new fridge freezer came yesterday finally!  What a pallaver to get it into the cupboard when we finally managed it I realised we had not taken the packing out of the motor at the back lol!!  Needless to say, it is still in place with the packing as we had had enough by then so we will tackle it today.

Hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you may do, take care xx
