Spring Has Sprung

Well I don't know about the weather where you are, but it has been beautiful here the last three days!  Such a change from the freezing cold weather we have been having!

It's Monday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Pollycraft!   This week our very sweet Joey has set the theme of Spring has Sprung!  An easy one right?  The winner of this week's challenge will receive three packets of die cuts from The Crimson Cloud!  Head over to the Pollycraft blog to check out my talented teamies' creations!

Here's mine using Claudia's Butterflies:

I decided to go for Spring kind of colours instead of a Spring sentiment...  The papers are all from Crate Paper and I have coloured Claudia with copics (see details below).  The felt flower is from Sew Sweet and the brads and charm are from my stash.  The sentiment is from Pollycraft.

Here's a close-up of Claudia:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting When We Can challenges: Anything Goes
The Paper Players Challenge #85: Spring has Sprung

Have a lovely day!
