Spring Challenge

Spring is in the air (I hope)  

Dawn Hill decoupage download

This is the first time i've ever used something by Dawn Hill!  I found it on Craftsuprint when I was searching for images for Easter Cards.  I think its really pretty especially when I teamed it up with my stash. Who wouldn't be happy to receive such a bright cheerful card (well maybe a boy wouldn't lol) but my granddaughter will. I'm entering it into these challenges here's hoping for a win!!

Step by Step (if you want to know what I did then read on)

I printed the sheet cut it out and decoupaged it.  I also cut the background down quite a bit as I love to use texture in my cards. I used some cosmic shimmer glitter paste through a mask onto acetate and set my topper in the middle of it. I used an 8x8 card base with a red mat and yellow spotty layer on top. I put some red glittery ribbon across before sticking it down. Then I added my top layers and a small yellow bow with a red gem on the side of the image with a sentiment.  I put a red flower in each corner and a yellow and white one on the bottom corners of the image. I also put a black gem ribbon slider on her hat with a red gem in the middle to finish and I love it.

 I hope you do too if you do i'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by Jacqui
