It is spring somewhere.....

Happy Friday fellow bloggers....
Yes I am sure many are experiencing signs of spring, but here in the Southern Hemisphere, definitely Autumn...certainly lovely weather here in South Africa.
Lots of challenges are calling for spring themed cards, so I decided to use the lovely image by Anne from The Outlawz freebie challenge in my card.  If you haven't visited The Outlawz you will love this challenge. You receive to digi images, make a card with at least one in the alloted 2 weeks and then you will receive your next set of images. Anne and Sandi are amazing artists and you will love their images

For my card I used a template for a "Card with Flower closure" that I received as a free gift  from  Cards etc Shop for joining their facebook page.




The paper I used came from a pad of My Mind's Eye...Lost and found.
The digi was coloured with aquarelle pencils. and on the inside I coloured a second digi and just cut out the flowers to place on the diecut.  On the inside I used Nestabilites and Nellie Snellen dies and the sentiments were from Whiff of Joy and a local supplier. The corners on the front were a Cuttlebug die and I used ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I will enter this in a few challenges
