Soft spring shades ....

oh my goodness, I almost forgot to post my card for this weeks Just Magnolia & hAnglar challenge 'Soft Spring Shades' -   This is a new baby card and I chose this cute image to stamp and colour with copics.  I chose shades of green as I think that is the most dominant colour in Spring with all the trees and shrubs coming into leaf (and the weeds of course!!)

 My background paper is by Pion which I got from my friend Jean.www.3d-jean.co.uk  I used pale lime satin ribbon tied with an 18mm clear acrylic button tied on with natural button twine.  The pastel pale green heart and teardrop pins are from the new pin wheels here and I added a self adhesive pearl heart in each corner. 

This is the inside of the card - sentiment printed onto cream card then mounted on to the heart edge nestie with a magnolia swirl - the background is Pion lily of the valley paper again - one of my favourites!
Ribbon, pins, button, button twine, pearls and lace are all from the Ribbon Girl

See you soon, Mary G x - by the way - just in case you thought I was a little Westie called Haggis, I thought it was time I put a photo of me on my blog!
