East Wind Challenge - March 2014 - Spring

Over at the East Wind Challenge Blog the topic this time is "Spring".  This means to me blues, yellows and oranges as spring brings up flowers like daffodils and tulips.

I have used the freebie image of the month.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I have coloured her in with my Graph'it pens, used a handmade stencil around the edge with a turquoise blue Pan Pastel to give a zig-zag effect.  I have coloured over the butterfly and flowers with my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.  The backing papers are from Happy Days and were on a CD free with a magazine last year.

I have stamped some tissue paper with some scroll stamps, die-cut with a scallop circle, scrunched them up and held the eight layers together with a small brad.  You get the effect of a large flower but not the weight of one made with paper/card so this helps with the cost of postage.

I have finished the card off with some wide lace, die-cut sentiment, flowers, gems, bunting banner and little butterflies from a Joanne Sheen confetti die.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
