Spring Bringer

Good morning everyone hope you are all okay.  This weather we are having is glorious isn't it?  It was so nice to get in the garden and get it all tidied up and it was actually warm enough to sit out and have lunch - in March!!

Today's card is made with a delightful little digital image called Spring Bringer by Wee Stamps:


Isn't she the sweetest and I think she's done her job as it is definitely spring here! I have used lilac as that is my favourite spring flower and I have two lilac trees in my garden, one is lilac and the other white.  I have coloured her with Prisma Pencils and added Stickles to her wings.  The papers are the new release from Nitwits called Gratitude.  My border punch is EK Success and the butterfly is a Magnolia Doohickey.  The doily is by Cheery Lynn - French Pastry (love it!!).  The metal corner embellishment is from Wild Orchid.  Ribbon and twine and charm are from my stash.  I crocheted the flower and added another resin flower from My Crafty Heart to it.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
