Spring Garden

Hello, it is another beautiful, sunny, spring day. I am looking forward to visiting the garden center later  to pick up a few early spring plants.  I am so happy to see the tulips coming into bloom all through the neighbourhood and I think my card today has been partly inspired by all of the pretty spring gardens.

I will be needing a few birthday cards this week so I figured I had better get started. For this card I have used one of my favourite Tildas from last spring and coloured her up in some bright spring colours to match with the beautiful Piccadilly line of papers from Basic Grey. Once again the layout has been based on an older sketch but I have given it a few modifications in order to add all of the pretty extra details that add to the bright spring garden feel of the card.

Once again, I have finished off the inside using bits and pieces of co-ordinating papers.

I hope that you have enjoyed your visit. Have a great day!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
