SIGNS OF SPRING IN SOUTH AFRICA


Bugs are buzzing, flowers are blooming .... and hayfever is affecting me!

But after the weekend's rain, everything is looking fresh and green.

My card today celebrates SPRING!!!
and I have entered it into The Outlawz Greeting Card challenge today.

The featured image is Scene it -Ladybugs from Bugaboo Stamps
and it's coloured using my alcohol markers

I used Glossy accents on the ladybugs.

To create my card I used the following:

white cs base
green cs mat


The sentiment is a plastic 'belly band' that came around some coasters I purchased - it seemed to be something that would come in useful - I feel great that it could be repurposed/recycled into my craft.

I also used an offcut of red gingham dp, and a ladybug button tied with an offcut of ribbon.

Thanks for visiting today!
