Springtime cards ..............

Ribbon Girl are sponsoring this weeks challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAnglar sTanglar with a £10 gift voucher - the theme is Spring and this is my guest DT card.  I coloured the cute image in with copics. Tulips are my favourite springtime flower and they are featured on the background paper - Springtime by Pion which I got from my friend Jean

I added a doohickey Magnolia swirl, and a cuttlebug corner all cut from green card plus peach coloured pearls from stash, 32mm cream vintage style fine cluny lace and peach seam binding ribbon. The lace, ribbon and stickles are from here.  The mulberry flowers are tangerine pretty blossoms from here plus other flowers from WOC, and the leaves are punched with my very useful MS punch! I added a touch of stardust stickles to the flowers for extra springtime sparkle!

Andrea made this gorgeous card - it's so elegant and it actually folds flat for posting! She embellished her card with 38mm cream guipure lace, Zva crystal swirls, pretty blossom flowers, 38mm satin band sheer ribbon and leaf pins.  Her favourite embellishment at the moment is Liquid Pearls - she puts them on to everything and I must say they do finish off cards beautifully.  All of the ribbons flowers, crystal flourishes, lace, and the liquid pearls are available from the Ribbon Girl online store
So ladies - you've still got a couple of days to enter the Ribbon Girl colour challenge and a whole week to enter the Just Magnolia & HS challenge - so get crafting  - and with the Easter holiday starting tonight we are hoping to spend many happy hours crafting (and eating the odd chocolate egg - I'ver had no chocolate or butter since Lent began and I've almost forgotten what it tastes like! NOT :)

See you soon, Mary G x
