I have another of the Cuddly Buddly cute Toby Tumble spring cards to share with you today. I've coloured with Copics, cut out with a Nestie circle then kept the die in place while I inked the edges with Sea Breeze Versamagic chalk ink. The paper is also from the Toby Tumble spring collection and I've matted with dark purple textured card then wrapped a length of purple lace around. I've created a little floral embellishments from oddments in my stash and added the golden gems to pick up the yellow from the image. I really must get a Happy Easter text stamp though, to fit along the bottom edge - any ideas where I can get one?

The theme on the Cupcake Craft challenge blog is for things on the farm so my little hatched chick should fit the bill. The For Fun challenge is to decide if it's still winter, or if spring is on the way ... ... I've gone for spring - roll it on! And the Daring Cardmakers have the perfect challenge for my card this week, to create with the February spring flowers, either violets or primroses. Well I have the violets on my card!
