Spring friends

There's a new challenge over at Catch the Bug, this week it's BINGO TIME.
For today I chose to play with spring friends, perfect for Easter or spring, colored with Promarkers, and I used the middle horisontal row.

I used Spellbinders dies to cut and emboss the image and placed it atop a pink doily. I've been using doilies lately, it seems I use them a lot, then nothing for a long time, then a lot again. The background is embossed using a Darice embossing folder. Flowers from my stash. A die cut butterfly (Penny Black) decoarted with liquid pearls (used with the same frequency as dolilies it seems), white string (very often used).

This card is also for:
Digi Choosday Challenge - #7 Animals & Insects
ABC Challenge - B is for... (Bunny, bird, butterfly)
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - #124 Anything Goes + Make it Cute

love this Pia, beautiful Spring colours, I think it would work equally well as a new baby card.

Oh, this is lovely! Very cute and sweet image, it looks very well with the pink doily! (I have some doilies, but I don't use them very much)
Love the detail of the embossed background, I think it makes really pop-out the image and add a lot of interest!! Also the yellow flowers are catching-eyes to the center!
Have a lovely weekend, Pia!

Gorgeous soft colours. I like the layered doilies. I don't have any real doilies but do stamp them. I like to emboss them so they look real!

(I started a message... Don't know where it went..) yes, so spring-y! It's funny how certain products or techniques take residence in your mind and on your desk.

Adorable card love the colours and image used.. The background embossing sure looks soft and just loved the dies you used. The butterfly over the flowers is clever and very effective. I do admire the way you use twine, it always looks lovely... Have a great week ahead.x
