A new dress for Ms Spring

Good morning friends,
I hope you are all having a good week,  and as it is Wednesday today  it is time for a new challenge at  DS4J, and the theme...A new dress for Ms Spring, using the colour GREEN.

This is my creation for this week's challenge

I decided to make a step card, using paper that I bought while on holiday. It is from Studio Light in the Netherlands.
Image is Cindy from DS4J, coloured with Distress inpads and cut out with a Nellie Snellen MFD
The sentiment was also stamped and cut with the smaller die from the set.
The leaves, flourish and heart are cut using Marianne Design dies and I finished it all off with a bow, some roses and beads.
Considering I don't often  use a lot of green, I rather enjoyed making this card and it came together very easily.

I urge you to have a look at the cards made by my fellow teamies. They are awesome, then have a go yourself. You do not need to have a DS4J digi, but if you use one you get more chances in the draw.

I am entering this in a few challenges

Craft your Passion challenge ...anything goes

Hope you have a wonderful week, and that if you are in the areas experiencing, floods, storms etc, you are all safe. Take care and see you all soon.

I love the green Ursula... especially the contrast created by using green on white and vice versa!
Flowers look great too!

Love, Love, Love your card today Ursula! You did a great job on this challenge, and the stair step was a perfect choice. Love the angle of the photo shot because it makes her look like she is sitting on the sentiment panel. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
