Hello everyone, Spring is almost here, but it is a little chilly although the sun is shining through those clouds. The daffodils are in full bloom and the tulips are budding, so we will have more colours in our garden soon, yippeeee.

Anyway, back to my card. I would like to enter this card into the following challenge.

CCC Digi Creations.  Challenge #22.  PRETTY PEARLS.

The background for this card is a gorgeous PASTEL GREEN with SILVER SPOTS.  All edges have a  SILVER CHAINLINK BORDER to highlight and give definition too.
 I then used a strip of CO-ORDINATING  PEARLISED CARD which I then punched down both sides with the Martha Stewart OPTIC DOT BORDER PUNCH. It was positioned across the card.
After colouring my image called PRETTY WINTER FRIENDS with promarkers, I mounted it on the same PEARLISED CARD and added the border.
It was placed over the border on sticky pads to make 3D.
At the bottom corner, I added a Creative Expressions 3D DOTTY ITTY BITTY BOW with a small
ROSEBUD in the centre.
I then made a layered DAISY FLOWER and in the centre added a MATCHING PEARL.
I used PALE GREEN PEARLISED CARD and the Spellbinders FOLIAGE SET for the greenery.
Finally the FLOWER in the top left FOLIAGE is made of PEARLS, It was kindly made for me by my friend Jacki, isnt it just perfect to complete the look of this card. I LOVE IT. Thank you very much my friend, you are so kind.

Thank you very much for coming to visit which is so very kind of you.
I hope you have a lovely weekend. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xxx
