Wee Spring Bringer

Hello! Hope you're all well!
I'm back with another 'fancy' card lol.
One of the ladies at work saw the card I made for Mams birthday HERE and asked for a 'special one like it' for a 50th birthday.
So I printed off Wee Spring Bringer and decided to treat myself to some new digital papers from Nitwits.

She is coloured with Promarker and Flexmarkers to match the gorgeous Romance and Roses papers using these colours:

I can't believe how many flowers I used! I just seemed to be pilling them on!! Lol.

 I didn't want the 50 to be huge because I don't know the recipient
and how pleased they are that they are turning that age so
(I know a few silly folk that are embarrassed that they are turning 50 next year!)
 I used two small number peel offs on some card candi.

A side view.
I was inspired by THIS gorgeous card to put something behind the image.
And I wish I hadn't cause it was such a pain! I'll leave the gorgeous cards to Bev lol.
and an inside peek
What I used:
6 x 6 white card blank
Flex and Promarkers
MS Butterfly punch
Ranger Liquid Pearls
Flowers from WOC and Mulberry Crafts UK
Card Candi, Stickles, Nesties
Pearls, silver peel offs and ribbon from stash   
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends Challenge - Bling (glittery wings and flowers)
If you through all of that well done and thanks for reading!! Lol.
I coloured up another Wee cutie last weekend so may be back soon!
Happy Crafting

Feeling all springy!

Oh what a title! Lol
I decided to have a little play with one of my favourite Wee images - Sweet Blossom 
when I really should have been packing for London woops- more on that later.
I coloured her up with Pro and Flexmarkers to match
the papers from the LOTV Promises pad.
I love the colours in the paper pad and am very pleased with how she has turned out :)
I cant remember the last time I used ribbon on a card
and have never ever made a big bow like this one!
I feel like I may have gone over board with the flowers too!

What I have used:
Wee Stamps -Sweet Blossom
LOTV Promises paper pad
Papertrey Ink - Aqua Mist and Winter Wisteria cardstock
White card blank
Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Lawn Fawn Happy Everything sentiment set
WOC and mulberry paper flowers
Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl
White Opal Liquid Pearls

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Passion For Promarkers - Ribbon, Lace or Twine

So London was awesome!
Thought I'd share a few photos
