Spring has sprung..

well, not here obviously as it's nearly autumn but everyone is waiting for spring to hit on the other side of the world!! And I ceratinly don't mind cos I love all the spring colours and all the bright cards made!! Last ight I did The Stamping Boutique Blog Hop and the cards were amazing - bright, spring colours, they were just gorgeous!!
     Anyway, i was reading through all my blog updates that I get when I sign in to my blog and there were a few challenges I really wanted to enter so I went looking for a sketch and decided on The Sweet Stop for inspiration!! With their sketch this week they also have a spin to Think Spring!! i also came across another blog Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog and they were asking for creations that were red, white and blue!! I know they are not typically spring colours but i think i pulled it off to make this spring card!! What do you think?
Again I have to apologise for the quality of the photo!! I am having real issues with my camera but i haven't put it in to get fixed yet cos something always comes up. And next week I'm going paragliding so perhaps after that I will take it to get fixed!!
I am really pleased with the way this card turned out. I used american craft and kaszazz papers, not sure the company that the flower paper is from, Coloured the image in with H20's and aquacrayons. The image is a Sarah Kay Image and the butterfly is a kaszazz punch!! I think the flower rhinesones were just bought at my local craft store!!
