Spring

Hello friends,

We are celebrating “Spring” at Double D Challenges and I hope you can join us this week DD_Springwith your flower creations. Although we are on the brink of winter in the southern hemisphere and the lovely autumn days are almost gone, I love to do cards with pretty flowers.With such a lovely inspiration photo you can just let the creative juices flow. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge – we would love to see your card.

I used a flowery background paper for my base layer and then added delicate die cut vines in a wreath pattern.  The flower bouquets are arranged on the vines to match the flower pattern of the designer paper. I added  vintage bird cages, silver bows and pearls. I finished off with a die cut sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
