Spring is in the air....I WISH!!

It is Nicola's turn to set us the challenge over on Dottie's World this week;


"Hello every one, it seems such a a long time since I've set a challenge, I will catch up with all your lovely cards I promise...Back to the challenge Spring is nearly here......I want to see shades of green and yellow and of course a download from Charmed Cards...Forget after this weekend everything will probably be white with snow lol!!"


Now I had an image come immediately to mind for this I have even printed it off, cut it out and started to colour it BUT I had this wonderful new lace sitting on my desk crying out to be used and I just didn't think it went with what I was creating. So while inspiration struck (and it doesn't strike very often at the moment!) I put my first idea to one side and will show that on Friday.

So, on with today's card! Now how could I resist this lace!
I used Juliet from the Girls about town collection on a sheet of BasicGrey paper from the Sugared range. My only regret is taking the stapler to it, initially I was going to hand stitch a few little "kisses" but I was running out of time and light. Never mind, perhaps next time!
Can I just say a huge thank you to Kath who organised a bulk buy of this wonderful lace for us over on Crafts by Carolyns! I LOVE IT!
