Spring Somethings

It's Friday again and that means a new challenge over at stamp something!

Spring something

is our theme this week! Sad to say that it got waaaay too cold here in IL again, we are even supposed to get some snow flurries :(

For my card today I used a digi from Phindy's place. It's been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil.

The paper is by "Three bugs in a rug "Chloe" - double sided. I distressed all edges and did some sewing with my janome mini. Around the image I used a stamp from itty bitty backgrounds by Stampin Up, then added some dazzling diamonds.
I embellished with ribbon, prima flowers and sticky pearls.

I would love to combine this card with the following challenges:

Our monthly sponsor Simon Says is back again this week offering a fantastic prize to one lucky winner! Hope you can play along!

Brilliant card and love the colours. You have reminded me that I must get my sewing machine out as all the sewing features add that extra something.
