Feels like spring again!

This card is for:-
1. Penny Black Saturday - week 70 - Buttons and Bows
2. Sketch and Stash - challenge 21 - sketch
3. C.R.A.F.T. - challenge 21 - A Recipe

I enjoyed this card as it took me away from the three main focuses at the moment that seem to be everywhere - Halloween, Autumn and Christmas. This reminds me of my favourite time of year, Spring, when all the green is just breaking through and there's buds opening everywhere.
But it also made me use something I have never used before and said I never would BUTTONS, but I made my self a promise to try different things and techniques so I gave them a go. I don't know why I hate using them but I just do.

Penny Black Saturday wanted to see buttons and bows this week and they are there on my card.
Sketch and Stash gave us a nice sketch to follow and to name my never used item it is this cute Penny Black image crossing bridges.
C.R.A.F.T. has a recipe which is 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, 3 papers, and it's all there.

Stamps - Penny Black crossing bridges,
Papers - In my minds eye bloom and grow,
Colouring mediums - distress inks, H20's,
Embellishments - Buttons, flowers, stickles, ribbon, thread,

Very nice card Tracy. Could not agree more with what you say about the themes going round, can get a bit repetative and I am not a big Halloween fan anyway.

Like the nice fresh colours of this one.
