It feels like spring

Yes the sun is shining, the crocuses are out, lambing is in progress - it must be spring. I love being able to look out to the fields to see the new little lambs taking their first look at the world and being able to hear their mothers calling to them, it's such a great time of year. Today's card is a spring offering, I think it would be suitable for a spring greeting, for Easter or even a birthday - what do you think?


The image is a Messy Rabbit one from Joanna Sheen, coloured with Promarkers and finished with Glossy Accents on the tulips and Stickles on the cotton-tail for a bit of shine and sparkle. My backing paper is K&Co Hopscotch and the border punch I've used is from Stampin Up. I've had the ribbon for a long time and this is the first time I've used it - I like the way it ties the colours together. Finally I added three dewdrops for balance.

Hope you like my spring offering which I'm entering for challenges at:
