Crafty Ann's Challenge #36 - Sketch and/or Theme "Spring is in the air"

Can I apologise for not getting round to as many challenge entry cards this week.  On Monday I had some oral surgery and since then I've looked like a zombie with a swollen face and don't get me started on the pain.  Hopefully in the next few days it will settle down.

The challenge this fortnight for Crafty Ann's is a sketch and/or theme of "Spring is in the air".  For my card I have used both the sketch and the theme but I have rotated the sketch.  I have used Crafty Ann's abstract backing papers in a light yellow and green and printed onto card for the matting and layering.  The digital image of the daffodils I have put into the empty Faberge style egg in My Craft Studio and coloured the image with Promarkers.  The card is finished off with a peel-off, ribbon and card candy.

I hope that you can join in the fun at Crafty Ann's this fortnight.  Click here to go and have a look.
