Thanks a Bunch with Spring Flowers

I've been busy making cards today while the kids were playing with their friends, and I had so much fun doing it!!
I am only showing you one of the cards I made today, I will show you the other two next week.

Mo Manning just released a few new stamps, and she is also having a Design Team Call for Mo's Dream Team. It would be an absolute dream to be creating for Mo Manning using her amazing images, so I am going to give it a try. To apply we are asked to use our favorite Mo Stamp and create something with it. 

Of course there are so many of Mo's stamps that I love, so I decided to purchase a new favorite, from her recent release, this is called "Spring for Sale" and I was in love with the image the minute I saw it. And since I was lucky enough to get the discount code by hopping along in Mo's hop, I was able to save 25% and so I added a few others to my order.
I colored the image using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, and copic markers for the skin tones.
I decided to use one of my favorite sketches, along with some matching designer paper from my stash. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Everyday Button Sentiments, it's been cut out using the button die. 
To finish it off I added some twine, glitter and did some sewing too.


Here is a closer view of the gorgeous image.

I would love to play along in a few challenges too:
And that would be all from me for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and please wish me luck. It would be an absolute dream to be part of Mo's Dream Team, but I know my chances are slim with all the amazing talent out there!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
