Daddy's Girl......

Good Morning!
Today is the start of a new challenge
over at Wild Orchid Crafts and

Belles and Whistles would love to see "Spring".
(And so would alot of other people too! LOL)
That means spring images, spring colors ~ whatever
makes you think of spring.

Wild Orchid Crafts wants to see you use Dies/punches.
I use them on just about every card so that one
was pretty easy.

I again made one card for both challenges and
this is my take on it:

These colors just scream Spring to me. The pastels and whites together.
I think because they are pretty Eastery looking. I also
added a ton of glitter, a butterfly and flowers. They are springy for
sure. I know they are not very colorful but I
thought the white would look good with a colorful
background.  Here is a close-up of all my glitter:

Paper ~ Prima
Inks ~ Distress inks (Spun Sugar, tumbled glass,tattered rose)
and Twinkling h20's (Tahitian sky, Bashful blue)
Accessories ~ Magnolia flower die, leaf die and lace die
Spellbinders Oval and scalloped oval, PTI butterfly
Flowers, lace and pearls ~ Wild Orchid Crafts

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
I hope you all have a great start to your week!
I am happy as it is the Mom's get together tomorrow
and I haven't been able to do it for a few weeks
since kids have been sick!!  Hopefully they
all wake up tomorrow healthy! LOL
