Happy Easter!

A whole day to officially indulge in chocolate. My kind of day! Hope you are all well. I've had a little bit of holiday, so have taken the chance to have a play!

I've made the card below using some absolutely gorgeous Echo Park papers , which are quite aptly called 'Springtime'. The colours on these are so beautiful. Tilda is new from the Butterfly Dreams collection this year. I really loved colouring her in. I have been playing a little with getting a more 'washed out' look to the colouring this week - hope you think so too!

I've used a lovely new 'Vintage Floral' Martha Stewart punch  and Nellie Snellen Doily dies  The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley set. I just love the little daffodils - it has taken me ages to open this packet to use them, as I am frightened that I will run out! Lol!

There is some of my favourite seam binding on there too - I didn't want a distressed look, so this has been left without any scrunching! (Is that even a word??!) The whole card had a spritz of Perfect Pearls mist to give it a bit of a twinkle. I think you can just make it out on the flowers in this next photo. I just love the really subtle sparkle that the mist gives, without depositing any colour on the project. Really lovely.
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges :

The Shabby Tea Room  Challenge Week #58 - Pastels (Project Colours) and Stripes (Background DP)
