The Sugar Bowl - Spring or Easter

Hi everyone, hope you are all well today, cor tis a bit chilly here! My daughter went straight out the door with her coat on this morning I didnt even have to ask her lol, so someone must have been cold yesterday.


I have made this card for the challenge over on The Sugar Bowl, which the theme is Spring or Easter, I knew the colours and image I wanted to use straight off for this one, and I decided to leave it minimal AGAIN lol as I am not sure If I am liking this style or not so may just stick with it for another few cards and see lol, check out the Amazing dt cards!

I embossed the bottom of the card with the cuttlebug Swiss dots folder, and then layed some paper and ribbon over it. The patterned paper is dcwv Nanas Kids pad. I layered the image up several times on plain cardstock and coloured her with promarkers. The flowers are prima with pebbles in the centres, and I pulled a few strands of the Jute to stick through them.

Thanks for stopping by and looking.xxx

Ps. The bit about your daughter and her coat made me smile. My son is 13 1/2 and at high school and rarely wears a coat (I gave up trying long ago) Funny thing is he rarely gets a cold!
