Spring Is Coming, A Challenge & A DT Call!

Good Morning all & a very Happy Sunday to you!
I hope you're all having a peaceful & relaxing weekend!
How's the weather with you???
It's freezing here & therefore it's perfect crafting weather I feel!
With that in mind, it's time for a new challenge over at
The theme this week for
So crafty peeps, Let's See Some Fresh Spring Colours on your creations!!
Here's my card!

The DT were given the lovely
Lulu In The Meadow image to work with this week!
As a new image she is on special offer for just 59p 
(I believe that's around 93cents in the US or 0.71euro)
She's just so adorable! 
Now Debbie the lovely boss did mention green & yellow but.....
the little flowers just sang bluebells to me!
I know they aren't in bloom yet but they are beginning to 
sprout & the promise of Spring is in the air!

As you can see I made an easel card & used a bluebell theme for my colours.
The paper I have used is a  from the A Touch Of Elegance 
digital paper set from Scrapbooking Mad

I printed it onto both sides of the card stock.
I added a paper doily which was distressed with two shades of green.
Lulu was cut out with a nestie

I coloured little Lulu up with promarkers
& cut her out with a nestie.
I'm not sure where the paper clip came from but it appeared on the floor 
where I was working so I decided to include it!

The Sentiment ticket is also from The Crafty Pad
& often features on my cards as it is so versatile!
other embellishments used are white organza ribbon, 
little Papermania green mosaic gems & the little 
Papermania flowers have been in my stash forever!
This week we have two sponsor's for you

Now, before I go any further, can I share some very some exciting news!!!
