A breath of Spring-Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge-Monthly special-Anything goes

Good morning everyone oooohhhhhh we had sunshine all day yesterday and the forecast says sunshine today too, its still chilly but the sunshine is lovely and the added bonus is better photos...my card for today is for our special monthly challenge over at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge so that means anything goes...I decided a springlike card was needed as soon as I got these amazing papers from Prima aren't they just lush, this is the Melody 6x6 paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...how perfectly does it go with this beautiful Magnolia stamp...I cut around the frame on this sheet of paper as I liked the look of the crooked frame, I think it works well don't you

the flowers are from Prima too, I'm loving their new flowers, they are such pretty girlie colours and all that lovely frosting on them, like sugary sweets, these are from Simon says Stamp...I finished with a few double loops of ribbon and a scattering of pearls...ohhhh a few people have asked me about what colours of Distress inks I use for skin...I use Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Tattered rose for my skin tones...hope that's some help...I'm also entering this for the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is a recipe (2papers, 1 image and 3 types of embellishments) and the Creative Inspirations in the garden challenge...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today might even get a little tidying done in my craft room (yeah right lol)...I hope wherever you are the sun shines on you today and when you have time dont forget to pop on over to Just Magnolia to have a look at the rest of the DT's amazing work
