Spring into Spring

Good Morning all,
It's time for a brand new challenge over at 
Crafting For All Seasons where the theme is 
Spring into Spring
Our Sponsor this time is
Fabulous Sponsor 2014
Here's my creation


The image I have used is Spring Lambs from Just Inklined
I lightly coloured it with flexmarkers then cut out with a nestie
& inked with old paper distress ink.
The papers are pages from an old Complete works of Shakespeare book 
& are inked too although they already looked aged.


The flower was from my stash as was the seam binding.
You can see the card is open just a little to give you an idea 
how it works if you haven't seen one of these before!


Here's a look at the side with the card half open.
The card will fold flat for posting!


Here's it tied back up again.
I love this style of card, be they CAS or heavily embellished!
I reckon this would be a great thank you card for a man.
Thanks for popping in this time!
I hope to see you in the challenge at CFAS!
