Spring Cleaning

Good morning to you hope you are enjoying your week.  I have a lovely crafty day today, first one for a while and the only one this week!  Today sees the start of the new challenge this week at Crafty Sentiments and the theme this week is:


we want to see projects with a Spring theme.  Here is my card:

I used the gorgeous Delightful Flowers available here and teemed it up with the Spring Sentiments available here. The image has been coloured with Copics - how cute is that bunny???!!  I then used my Dienamics Stitched circle Stax to cut out both the image and the sentiment.  I matted them on Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles.  The card has been cut using Go Kreate XXL Square Frilly #7 and I also used that for the mat.  Papers are Nitwits.  Border is Dienamics Mini Scallop Border, banner is La Las Land Scallop Pennant, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Woodware flower and leaf punch, flower ribbon and pearl from my stash.

Here is another view:

We have a fabulous prize up for grabs this week:

3 Digis of your choice from the Crafty Sentiments shop whoo hoo what a fab prize but remember you have to be in it to win it!  Go over to the Crafty Sentiments Challenge for some more inspiration from the rest of the lovely DT and for further detail.  And don't forget on the 20th and 21st we will be having a blog hop to celebrate the new releases - can't wait!
