Well, I think all this lovely weather has gone to my head, the only cards I seem to make at the moment are ones that require sunglasses to even look at they're so bright. I wanted to combine several challenges with this card and my jumping off point was the challenge over at Get Funky, which was Zing into Spring, where they wanted to see the colours Green, Yellow and Lilac, and of course I used the beautiful floral backing paper that they had as a freebie - I still have half an A4 sheet of this left, and I'm sure it will be making another appearance very shortly.
I used the Sketch from Sketch Saturday for my layout and also wanted to include the Crafty Catz challenge this week, which was to use embossing on your card, I used a lovely cuttlebug folder (couldn't tell you which one as I've thrown away the wrapping & it doesn't have the name printed on it - how silly is that?!) and the yellow card is embossed with a freebie embossing folder I got with one of the recent docrafts magazines.
The image on my card was a freebie on the Bugaboo website (in fact it still is until Friday) - I wonder if there's a blog challenge out there for using freebies, think I might win it this week, until I started writing this I didn't realise how many freebies I'd used - stingy or frugal, you judge!
The image and layer were cut with Nesties, and the border punch is one of the new XCut range. The ribbon and flower gems were from my stash.
Anyway, hope you like the card - try wearing sunglasses to view, sure it will be slightly less painful on the eyes!
