Hello Spring!

Hello Everybody!
It is officially spring so spring cards and Easter cards are the in thing. I had big plans this weekend to make loads of cards but so far only one has materialized and I was really lucky to get this one in....My daughter was visiting and then my brother came round with his kids and the day soon goes so I ended up with this one card...

 I have made it for the following challenges:
Penny Black (sketch)
Allsorts (spring)
The recipe for the card: 
Background paper Pink Petticoat Wild Blossoms digi papers, the other paper I stamped with Stampabilities Polka Dot background - I used various inks to make it more colorful and match the flowers on the other paper...Spellbinders Nesties were used for the scalloped circle!
The stamp is a Penny Black , the flowers and leaves were made with a Woodware punch, a little bit of glitter glue and a few Dovecraft gemstones and ribbon from my new italian stash!
I am trying to get a more crisp photo of my cards but whatever I do (you should have seen me juggling about 3 of my lamps trying to get it right) they are just not what I want - I guess I will have to start taking photos in the morning outside on my terrace - luckily it is light in the morning before I go to work now!
I think that is it! I am so slow with these Easter cards....need to get into 5th gear otherwise....
Have a lovely evening ladies, will be back soon!
