Good afternoon again. Well, I think this will be my last for today. There are still more to come, but I need a break and a cuppa, haha.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Cute Card Thursday.  Challenge #365.  SPRING FEVER.

Brown Sugar.  Challenge #138.  ANYTHING GOES.

QKR Stampede.  Challenge #131.  THINK SPRING.

Crafts 4 Eternity.  Challenge R#218.  PASTEL SHADES.

Hiding in my Craft Room.  Challenge HIMCR #192.  EMBOSSING.

For the front I used a gorgeous EMBOSSING FOLDER which was a Free Gift in a cardmaking magazine.
My image is called TULIP BASKET which I coloured with Promarkers, then mounted onto
LILAC CARD and edged with a SILVER DECORATIVE BORDER. Once placed in the centre I made a DOUBLE LAYERED DAISY FLOWER using the SMALL DAISY PUNCH. I used a gorgeous EMBOSSED AND GLITTERED CARD to make the FOLIAGE using one of the dies from the Spellbinders FOLIAGE SET.
I used the SMALL BUTTERFLY PUNCH to create DOUBLE LAYERED BUTTERFLIES in co-ordinating cardstock.
Finally I made a 3D ITTY BITTY BOW by Creative Expressions and added a LILAC PEARL for the centre.

Enjoy the rest of your day and Happy Crafting.
With love, Sandra xxx
