Spring & New Goodies !!!

Hi It's me again !!!
Hope your week is going good !

I have made a gorgeous gift box with envelope and tag using my new goodies with the theme of spring. I used a tutorial to help me and which gave me the inspiration.

I used distress inks to paint this darling LOTV Girl and her dog on the swing - stamped onto waterford 300gsm HP paper with versafine black ink. I finished with a white sakura pen and stickles to her wee bows.

I used papers from Bo Bunny & Prima for the backgrounds and cut the butterflies and tiny leaves from them. I stitched all the panels. I did my first order from WOC and got these stunning daffodils and lace. I was a wee bit dissapointed though as nearly everything I wanted to order was out of stock and when my fella gets the card out it could be now or never lol !! I used my cuttlebug for the letters .  I used flowersoft for the first time and wow I love the effect !!!

I did not want to waste a bit of these lush papaers so I even made my own blades of grass.  I also love distressing card with my scissors . I played with my first seam binding and made this bow on the back where the sentiment can be written.

Sorry for all the pics but I was so pleased with myself as I feel I am definately getting better when I look back at my earlier projects.

I would like to enter this Gift Card into LOTV Challenge blog where the theme is spring
where I got my inspiration from using the daffodils and die cutting the word spring.

I would like to also enter this fabby challenge for Papertake weekly - Anything goes with something new. I am a lucky lady, my new goodies were the flowers,lace,seam binding from WOC and the flowersoft.
