Just Because I can!

Here's my DT offering

I made a spring card!
We the ladies of the DT were asked to use the oh so cute Roshell Ducky & Eggbert image from
The Crafty Pad designs

As soon as I saw this image, I knew what colours I wanted to use! 
Yellow & orange just spell out summer to me & the daisies on this image did just the same!
The base card was made using a sheet of A4 paper which I folded in half & then trimmed to a square.

The DP I used is Papermania & it's matted onto orange lightweight card then attached to the card base.
I then added strips of dotty ribbon to the diamond section before adding the image which was coloured using
Promarkers & the cut out with a square Nestie on the diagonal,
I then added dotty buttons to the corners of the image.

Before adding the DP strip to the bottom of the card I wrapped some ribbon around it.
The sentiment I used Daisy Chain Days Of Summer is from The Crafty Pad Designs too! 
I cut that out with an inverted scalloped circle then matted onto a scalloped circle.
I added some dotty buttons on top of the ribbon.

I finished the project of with a tailored bow. 
It's the first time I've made on of these & I think it looks quite smart!

Thank you for stopping by to look at my creation, I hope you like it!
I hope you too find some time to make a card for someone
