ABC & Cupcake Challenge/Crafty Creations


Went to the garden centre yesterday and bought lots of ready made pots for the front of the house. That time of year when I feel the need for a bit of colour out the front and feels like spring is in the air!!
Another sunny day here and hope I have interpreted it on this card. An element of Spring to it I think, so am putting it in this weeks challenge for Crafty Creations. Also fitting ABC ( Flowers) and Cupcake (Brown + 1).

The stamp is one of my favourites bought from a local craft shop. Coloured with Derwent Coloursoft Papers and aged with Rangers Distress Ink Pad. The BP's are from the new Bearly Mine Design CD available HERE, embellishments from K & CO, flowers and ribbon from stash. 
Notice how the ribbon runs downhill, this has been fixed and is now back in a straightline LOL.
