You still have time to enter so pop over and check out all the details.
This is the card I created. I hope you like it.
I looked at each square on the board and all the flowers were so fresh and bright . Perfect for a "Spring" card I thought. I also noticed the banner in the bottom left corner and decided I needed a banner on my card too.  As the theme seemed to be all about flowers I used some scrap paper that I thought perfect for Spring. I added plenty of colour co-ordinated  flowers. The glittered butterfly was given to me a few weeks ago by my friend Tina and it was just perfect for this card. (what a shame the glitter does not sparkle on the photo like it does in reality). I used blue cord to make the line for my flags and cut out some triangles to cover the ones already on the paper. I 3D'd the leaves, added my buttons and cut out the the Spring letters on my Cricut. It took me a whole day to make it and it was worth every bit of that time.
I have entered it into several challenges which are listed below my card.
