Basic Grey Challenge 29 - Spring

The Basic Grey challenge this week is to create a card with a Spring/Easter theme, check out the DT cards they're stunning.
I used Basic Grey Offbeat papers and tried not to play it safe on this one - as I usually do - and really moved outside my comfort zone by using....
  • 4 different designer papers!
  • a hand written sentiment!
  • my own hand made topper!
  • inked stitches!

These are things I wouldn't have contemplated a few months back, and you know what I 'm more than pleased with the result!

The bird was made from felt using a template I made from a clip art image. The flower was made with a cuttlebug die.
