Spring has sprung

It's been a lovely long Easter weekend but now it's Tuesday and we're back to work - boo.  I'm off to Crewe today to visit a dairy college!  Should be interesting lol :)

At the weekend I asked Jen to choose a paper pad for me to make a card with.  She chose Emma's Garden by Jennifer Ellory.  This is full of fresh greens, pinks and yellows and I immediately thought of Springtime and flowers [Not much of a leap was it ;)]

I also wanted to incorporate a tag in some way.  I've seen a few tag cards and like the different styles I've seen.  I kept mine quite basic but I think it works well.  I covered the tag with one of the papers and tied a bright ribbon through the top.

I chose two papers for the background and used the same ones for the flower centres.  The large blooms are from a spots and stripes set.

I used the fern die again and added the cut pieces from my ribbon to add a bit of colour behind them.

Finally I cut a butterfly using the Papillion 2 die from Spellbinders using pink card.

Hope you like it.  TTFN Jude xx
