Spring is in the air

What a lovely day it is today....it might be cold out there, but the sun is shining and that always makes me smile! I hope you're having a lovely weekend wherever you are in the world today!

I have a card to share with you which is inspired by colours of spring...blossom pinks, fresh greens and sunny yellows....


I've used a patchwork background, made up of three different papers (two plain and one patterned), on top of that I've added my stamped image. As you all might know I love cupcakes and so its probably not a surprise to see them on my card! I think the stamped image really compliments the cupcake backing paper that I've used.

I've coloured the image using some pastels...something I haven't done before as you can probably tell! It was a bit messy and I think I need a bit more practice!

I'm going to enter this in several challenges:
Secret Challenge Saturday Crafter  - patchwork background
Sir Stampalot Challenge - spring is in the air - colour combo
Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - signs of spring - I've picked colours


I hope this card makes you smile!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Wedgie xxx
