Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 135

This time at Crafty Cardmakers and More, we're celebrating spring! So, anything that's about new growth - colours, flowers and so on is fine.

I decided to get a start on some Easter cards. I don't make many of these, and only send to immediate family, but somehow Easter still creeps up on me, and I find I'm behind with them.

I kept it fairly simple. The paper is from a CD called Flower Power which always seems to be my first port of call when it comes to Easter creations. Since there are pretty daisies on that, I decided to make some daisy-like flowers. The larger one is actually an adapted Sunflower and the smaller one is the daisy - both from the Susan's Garden Sizzix range. I used some gold-toned white card and tinted the centres with a little Pan Pastel. The flourishes are Sizzix too, and the computer-generated sentiment and mat were cut using Nestibilities.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges;

Crafting for All Seasons where they want spring colours,
FabnFunky where they want us to 'spring into colour',
Penny's where they want us to use our favourite embellishments (flowers),
Whimsy where they want us to use a die cut,
Bunny Zoe where they want spring colours,
Challenge Up Your Life where the theme is Easter.
