Spring is in the air

Happy Sunday friends,
Firstly I would like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with all my friends on the east coast of America, as "Irene" has been making its way. Hope you are all safe and that any damage will not be too severe where you are.
Next I would also like to welcome new followers to my blog. Lovely to have you visiting and do appreciate your comments.
Yes here in South Africa spring is in the air, although today has been rather cool and cloudy, but the trees are blossoming and the lovely early scented flowers are starting, the daffodils are opening, so if we can get some early rains that would just be the ideal prize.

My card today is being entered in a number of challenges. Firstly
Digistamps4joy... Spring plus handmade flower
The Shabby Tea Room...Sweet days of Summer...use colours pink/peach/green plus handmade flower
Tuesday Throwdown... Dimension/texture
Totally Gorjuss you like it
Charisma Cards...glitter it
Sarah Hurley challenge .....Bling and sparkle
The Outlawz..Greeting card
The Sisterhood of crafters..flower power Here is what I used:
Paper Bazzil, put through the cuttlebug with roses folder and some glitter brushed on the roses.
Image...DigiStamps 4 Joy..Spring.. Coloured with distress inkpads, punched out flowers in her hair, mounted on paper doilies cut with an X-cut die.
Flowers and leaves punched from a Marianne Design die, misted with silver glimmer mist,
Sentiment.. Whiff of Joy cut with a Nellie Snellen die and attached with ribbon
Some bling on the flowers and in the corners.
I must apologise. The colours, especially of the flowers haven't come out as they should. We did have a rather dull day, Sorry for this.
Love to know what you think of it. Have a great week and take care.

This is really fabulous, Ursula, and so ultra feminine. Thanks for your concern for we east coasters. I am in Canada so Irene may have lost some steam by the time she gets here.

Very girly. Love that doily and your roses look fine to me - nice effect from the paper on them.
