Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!

Today is the first day of spring, so to welcome spring I have a 'flowery' card.
Recently I made a card using this oh-so-cute image by Lili of the Valley.
I actually stamped 2 images, and the first was such a joy to colour, 
I decided to create another card, this time using mainly blues.

The papers were free with a magazine.

A close-up view of little Teddy and his over-sized bouquet.

Inside the card is decorated to match the front.

  1. Oh hun, this is absolutely delightful! I love this bear, and you have coloured it brilliantly, such a pretty card in my favourite colours. We are at the other end of the spectrum here, heading into autumn in three weeks time. Don't get me wrong, I love autumn - just not so keen on winter that follows it. Huggles to you xx

  2. A gorgeous card Jennifer. I love the cute image and the pretty papers and colours.
