Cute and girly Spring card

The Penny Black and More challenge for the month of April  is "cute" and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs as usual. Pop over here to get all the details and take a look at the design team's lovely work.
I have a set of these PB cute girly stamps and am always spoilt for choice when making a card. This little girl on her bicycle is a very versatile stamp that I use very often. As the sun was shining beautifully when I made my card I decided I would have to make it a spring and cute card too. I used many of my favourite colours and papers. I tore the edges of some odd bits of scrap papers to give some interest and added ric rac. For the tree, I cut out a long rectangle for the trunk and a scalloped circle and a smaller plain circle from old odd bits of matching scrap paper for the top of tree. I cut a matching flower from the same paper for the centre and layered it all with foam pads to make it stand out. The added addition of the little butterflies gave it the overall look of spring.I was really pleased with the look of this card considering I used lots of old bits left over from some lovely designer paper I had.
As usual I have entered my card into several challenges that are listed below.      anything goes 3 shapes. I used 3 shapes to make my tree Spring Stamp something Stamp it Spring Anything goes Things with wheels Butterflies  Spring is in the air + butterfly Spring Spring fling Spring /Going dotty 3 of a kind (butterflies on  my card) Anything goes linky party sing- a- long( I chose "ridin' along on my push bike honey" by the mixtures Spring Spring or Easter Anything goes create a scene pastels Spring is in the air All about spring Spring/Easter Outside Spring/Easter  Anything goes  Anything goes square cards baby or Anything goes
