"Fancy Spring" Card

Jacqueline of Make My Monday  decided to really challenge her design team this week (well it was a challenge for me in any event - I don't do folds and shapes very well - my main problem is keeping everything straight and clean).  BUT hey ho ..... it's always good to be stretched.

Carrying on with the "Spring" theme Jacqueline would like to see a "Spring fold" card .... over on the MMM blog Jacqueline has provided a link to a tutorial.

Here is my card:-

I have used Crafty Individuals paper as my covering which I have edged with a pink ink pad.  I have also used textured pearlised pink card and white textured card for my basket and flowers.
My butterflies and sentiment have been stamped.
I have used Marianne Design Craftables Basket CR0218Tulips LR0209  which have been coloured with chalks, Anja Corner LR0214 and Lace Edging LR0161.



I am entering my "spring" card into the following challenges:-

 Cupcake CraftRoom - "Spring Bouquet"

Sparkles Forum Challenge - "Mother's Day and/or Spring"

Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog - "Ribbon and/or Lace"

This is really pretty with the butterflies and lovely colours you've used. I don't often do shaped cards either so it will challenge me this week too
