Just For Fun - Its Spring time

This is my entry for this weeks Just for Fun
which is , Its Spring Time.

I love Pansys and Violas and when all the daffodils
start flowering I find myself looking for the little violas
i adore the colours the beautiful purples , lilacs and touches of yellow on their petals .
Ive had this sizzix die for some time, it was one of the first
i ever bought , yet I hardly use it . So I thought this was perfect for this challenge.

I started by cutting out a selection of colours

Then layering the different shades of the petals on a base flower
I took some cream cardstock and matted it onto gold
and added some gold ribbon across the bottom

I used a nib dipped in distress ink to highlight the petals
Added my sentiment and attached 3 flower heads
to my card

I added some purple cardstock to lift it a little

And thats my card finished.
Hope everyones plans for christmas are going well , its certainly very busy here
I dont know where the time is going too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and as usual its much appriciated .
Hope you all have a lovely week. Please leave a comment so that I know
you have stopped by , thanks .
