I'm Thinking Spring

Think Spring, Think Spring, I figure if enough of us think that........it may happen, or is it just wishful thinking! Half the UK is still getting snow.
Anyway here I am today with my card for the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, and I decided to follow the theme of "Spring"
I don't often make purple cards, but it just suited this image of Finding a Crocus, I remember the days when we used to go looking for the first crocus of the year when I was a child.
 I started off cutting out the image with one of the smaller circles from the Large Circle Stackers, then I cut out a bigger circle just using the outer edge of the backing. I laid this on top of the Ankara doily, using the Angel wing as the backing.
To create the flowers I've used the middle flower section from the Manon Wedding Garland die, then created a daisy using the middle and smaller bits from the Daisy Strip. I created a smaller daisy using the Darling Daisies, and a tiny rose using the miniature rose die. I've added the mini fanciful flourish and the olive branch die, and the biggest of the two hearts from the Two Hearts die. And look at that gorgeous Chicken Wire behind the image, I love the effect it adds to a card or a layout.
