Spring Inspiration for Allsorts 405

Hello everyone! Hard to believe it's March already! I'm definitely ready to put away my winter coat, I really enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather we had last month, even though it was strange being able to leave the coat behind in mid- February. I don't usually mind winter much, but this year I had to drive during winter weather on several occasions and already had enough of it by the end of December! Now let's just hope the spring storms won't be too severe this spring...already had a taste of them earlier this week!

It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this week it's Brenda's turn to host, and she has a very fitting theme for us this week. A spring inspiration collage.

 Week 405 Inspiration

 To play along simply be inspired by the picture, link up your project on the challenge blog and you'll be entered into the prize drawing. Our generous sponsors this week are
DigiStamp Boutique and Little Claire Designs giving away two great prizes!

Here is what I came up with.

The image is a new stamp by LOTV, just recently released, I just couldn't resist the cute bunny and daffodils are my favorite spring flowers - can't wait until mine are blooming!! I got the digi version and printed it on Neenah linen card stock, then colored using my Faber Castell Polychromo pencils blended with baby oil.
The sketch has been kept simple, I just rounded the corners of my image panel, mounted onto Daffodil Delight card stock and then onto the Pear Pizzaz card base. The designer paper strip is by Stampin Up (retired). Spring sentiment is also by SU from a retired Easter set, it's one of my favorite spring sentiments, in fact I have used it again on tomorrow's card 😀


I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly and flowers, but like so often, it's so hard to tell on the pictures. A couple sticky rhinestones were added to the butterfly and I used some twine to finish it off.
