Elphine House Australia Challenge #57

Hi again!  I'm back with a second post today, because it's already Wednesday morning in Brisbane and time for a new Elphine House Australia Challenge!  The theme this month is "Spring is in the Air".  Indeed it was in the air here over the weekend, but not so much today!  Hope all the blooming beauty isn't damaged by tonight's freeze!   Anyway, I'm here to share my DT post for the new challenge.
Here is my Spring card:

My card base and mats are SU Kiwi Kiss and the patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Laura Flowers For You from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Stickles to the flower centers and the butterfly.  I also added grass, clouds and the sky with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some chevron-striped ribbon and a little scissors charm finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elphine House Australia blog and check out the gorgeous creations from Lynda, Lynne and Julie.  We hope you will play along this time!  All you have to do is follow the theme and use an Elisabeth Bell image.  It can be from any company.  You have until Tuesday, May 20th, Brisbane time to enter your project.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge #254 (Spring blossoms)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #99 (Easter or Spring)

Have a nice evening and see you soon!
