DCM 'Springing into Spring'

After having a bit of time away from crafting and blogging, I am slowly getting back to normal.  It's Friday so that means a new challenge over at Daring Cardmakers, and such a great challenge to come back to.

Beckie would like to challenge you to make a card with a 'spring' on it somewhere. 

And now for a little special treat for one lucky person!

This week digital stamp store 'Little Blue Button' is sponsoring the dare and have a $10 gift certificate to give away! 

All you need to do is leave a link as usual to show us your finished creation and you'll be entered into the prize draw. The winner will be picked at random and announced ahead of next week's dare (Friday 5th April). Big thank you to Little Blue Button for offering this cool prize! Don't forget to check out their store, maybe there's something there to inspire your 'Springy' card creation!

Here is my card.....

 I had so many ideas for this card but settled with using some beautiful spring colours, flowers and this super cute wooden deer.  Oh and not forgetting the little wire springs stems of the flowers.  All of these things remind me of spring.

The seam binding double bow was layered with a white cherry blossom and pink roses.  I curled the stems of the flowers to look like little 'spring's for the challenge.  I added a little amount of stickles to the pink roses and tucked a few little leaves behind the roses.

I really liked how this card turned out and it felt great to be crafting again.  Thanks for such a great challenge Beckie!
