Diamond Spring

Well here we are again another weekend is here, we change the clocks this weekend so it will be light longer, that will be nice.
I am sharing my card with you today that I have made for my SIL Mum, she has had an operation this week so I thought something nice and bright would hopefully help her recovery.
I have gone for a diamond spring card, first time I have done one to actually make from scratch, so I'm quite pleased with it for a novice!.
I have used Centura Pearl  to make the card from Crafters Companion, the papers I have used were spring flowers from a free paper stack with a magazine, I matted and layered it onto mirri card.
The topper is one of the die-cut decoupage Reddy  from Crafters Companion, I matted and layered the topper onto co-ordinations card stock which I also got from Crafters Companion.. I have put a couple of bows from my stash.

The Challenges I would like to enter my card into are:

Crafting Purple Frog - Anything Goes.
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes.
DL.Art Thankful Thursday - Flowers.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs Julie x
