LOTV DT Card & Challenges!

Happy Thursday everyone, we've gone all "Spring like" over at this weeks LOTV Challenge and I tried to incorporate a slight vintage feel to this weeks card. Yep, we'd like to see your "SPRING" cards this week!
I have used "Spring Bunny with Daffodils" and coloured with Copics then spritzed the background with Gold Glimmer Mist. The papers are BG Recess and Prima Sweet Fairy. I've randomly used my TH Butterfly stamp on the background. LOTV has been mounted into a Shapabilitie Frame with a Punched Border behind. Flowers are Wild Orchid, Punched Butterfly - EK Success, Viva Pearl Pen and lots of Stickles. Ticket (sorry don't know) and a touch of lace.

My teams have made the most gorgeous of cards, we would love it of you could play along.

Here is my usual list of challenges;
Ambers Crafts - April Flowers
Lets Ink it Up - Die Cuts/Punches
Scrappy Frogs - Flowers & Lace
Tuesday Throwdown - Florals
Craft Us Crazy - Happy Easter/Spring
Whoopsi Daisy - Glitter/Glitz
Totally Gorjuss - Spring is Sprung
Prairie Fairy - Oh So Spring
ABC - R for Roses
Shellys Images - Get Punchy
Ai Factory - Bright as Day
Sew Many Challenges - Spring Fling
Alys Sunday Challenge - Happy Spring
Gingerloft Creations - Die Cuts and or Punches
Stampin with the Dragon - Spring Creations

Back soon with another. Got a new Daytime Light yesterday, a nice big one to, helped take these piccies as its so dull here at the moment.

I have for the first time put this card for sale on bay.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today
Enjoy the rest of your week
