Spring Challenge at Lili of the Valley

Hello lovely peeps

There's a Spring Challenge running over on the Lili of the Valley Facebook page at the moment. It's running until 6pm on Sunday 13th April so you still have plenty of time to enter - you just need to make something 'springy' with a LOTV image.

There are some fab prizes on offer for 5 winners that we will pick at random. The first 4 will have the choice of any of the following;
Any 2 sentiment sheets or
any 5 rubber stamps or
any Cross Stitch Kit or
£20 to spend in our Ebay Store (where there are still many die cut sheets and toppers)

The lovely Ribbon Girls have also offered a fab £10 voucher, thank you Mary and Andrea x

For my card I've used one of the gorgeous stamps that was re-released  recently. There are 14 returning favourites -  available again for a limited time only. This one is Spring Bunny with Daffs

I've coloured him in with Promarkers
Bunny - Tan, March Hare, Satin, Blush, Khaki, Pastel Beige
Daffs - Apple Cider, Lime Zest, Mustard, Daffodil Bloom, Ice Grey 1

The background was done with a Sizzix embossing folder called 'Happy' and the greeting is from the LOTV For You Circular Sentiments set. I've glued some coco fibre behind it along with some foliage cut from some old My Minds Eye papers.

For the bottom of my easel card I've used part of a retired stamp called 'Leap Frog', stamped directly onto yellow ombre paper and coloured in. The flower and stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts - I coloured the stamens with a promarker to match the centres of the daffs.

This is such a pretty, elegant design, and I've just figured out why I love it so's because the embossing reminds me of a cosy warm jumper! Love it :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
