Put a Spring in your Step

Another Tuesday and another card for the Everybody Art Challenge Blog. This week the theme is Spring.
To make my easel card I have used the excellent sketch from Friday Sketchers and one of my new Magnolia stamps from the Spring Stamp Club.
This card also fits into a couple of challenges, they are:
Magnolia Down Under - Flower Power
Materials used:
Core Couture - glitter card for base
Papers - My Minds Eye, Dovehouse Tea House
Medium - Prisma Pencils
Sentiment - LOTV
Embellishments - Prima Flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearl brads, Lace and Ribbon
Dies - Spellbinder Circles, Nellie Snellen borders and flower die.
The Nellie Snellen dies I picked up at the Make It craft weekend at Farnborough. These dies are definitely the way forward for me, not only are they reasonably priced at £8, they store easier than the Martha Stewart punches.
This was the first craft show I have enjoyed for a long time. Usually they are so busy that its very difficult to see things and I get fed up with crowds very quickly. I got to Farnborough just after lunch and it was bliss!
Thanks for looking.
