Spring has Sprung!!

Spring is here - not that you'd know it here in the UK as it's pretty cold here.  However, it is the 1st of April and it is time for a new challenge on my store blog Ladybug Crafts and the topic this month is Spring!!

I have made a card which uses Springy colours and a really funky Cockatoo by La Blanche - 

I stamped my image in Gathered Twigs distress ink and embossed with some holographic powder to give it a twinkle.  I added just a little colour with some distress markers. I used an 8 x 8 card base and matted and layered brown cardstock and some patterned papers which I had distressed and inked around the edges.  I added a piece of hessian behind the image and some silky crush brown ribbon which I twisted and looped along the bottom of the card.  I finished by doing the inside of the card to match.
Unusually for me I haven't added a sentiment yet as I can't really decide what suits the card, but I probably will add a sentiment before it goes for sale ;o)
I hope you love my laughing parrot and that you'll come and join in our Spring challenge this month
