Welcome Spring

I love daffodils as they always make me think that Spring has arrived, so I've used a cute Lili of the Valley pre-coloured topper for my card.  I'm entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'Welcome Spring' and Die-Cut Divas 'Something Spring' challenges as well as the Lili of the Valley 'Spring Challenge' and the ABC Challenges 'C for Cute'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Bunny with Daffodils' pre-coloured topper
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Labels One', Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly'
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Leaves', Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Gold matt, white silk

I embossed the leaves onto white silk card and trimmed it around the edge of the embossed area.  This was then layered onto gold card and attached to the card front.  I used masking tape to hold the topper in the Labels One die (the topper was a square and was only just wide enough to fit the die) and then die cut and embossed the image.  I die cut and embossed a larger Label One from the gold matt card, layered the image on top and attached them to the centre of the card.  To finish, I die cut a mini butterfly, shaped the wings and attached it to the card.

Oh I love these LOTV bunnies. (Think I have some stored away somewhere, and forget about them). This one is just so 'happy' and perfect to celebrate Spring. It looks lovely with the gold mats and that gorgeous white embossing on the background. Happy Spring to you, and TFS. Looks like some fab Spring candy that you are generously sharing too! Hugs
