Spring Wishes to Everyone

Good morning everyone and I hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend - hopefully with lots of chocolates!!

Today's card is all about Spring I have made it for my daughter as a Spring/Easter card:

The digital stamp is Sweet Blossom by Wee Stamps and I have coloured her with Copics and Prisma Pencils.  I have distressed around the edge of the image with Shabby Shutters DI.  The image has been cut and matted with Spellbinders Nesties and the computer generated sentiment has been cut and embossed with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  The little butterfly I added to the image has been made with my Woodware punch.  I have added some Liquid Pearls to the flowers on the image.  Ribbon is from stash and flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The papers are from Nitwits called 'Petal Pixies'.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew - Spring
Paper and Such - Spring or Easter
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel - Spring is in the Air
