Spring is in the air (Item Id#1109)


Good Morning people!! Woaaah its saturday...........day to relax and craft!! I just love it :)
This card screams SPRING :). I had not used green and pink for a while so just thought of going with it this time.  


I crushed the green paper to give a little effect. The plaid white background has been created using crayons.(The poor girl that I am, I dont own any pattern papers yet...so I create my own each time :) ) . The pink checked background came with my fruit packaging (So to say that my waste master instincts have returned with this card....lol). The flowers have been painted using water colors.I have popped up one of the flowers to give a 3D effect, I am not sure if its visible in the picture. 

And this is how it looks from inside

Isn't it lovely?? Well, its definitely one of my favourites.

This goes for the following challenges

Crafty Catz (Spring)
Simple Doodles (Show a little green)
All Sorts Challenge (Spring is in the air)
Simon Says Challenge (Show us your greens)

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

  3. What a splash of summer! I love all the colors and the bright and sunny feel to this card. I really like that you have made your own background and the fruit packaging is just so clever. I would never think of that! Thank you for the idea!
