DT Card for Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge # 109

Good Morning everyone.
I hope you had a good weekend and that you are looking forward to a fresh week!
It's snowing steadily here at the moment,  I don't know where Spring disappeared to!

Today is the start of a new Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge 
This time we are on sketch number 5  and the optional theme chosen by the wonderful Kevin is Spring Colours. Maybe by the time the challenge finishes in 2 weeks we will have some nice Spring weather too, that would be nice.

We are very lucky to have 2 sponsors for this challenge:
Tracy at Dies to Die For - Prize £10 voucher
and
Whoopsi Daisy Digis  - Prize of 2 sheets of digis

Whoopsi Daisy gave the DT some cute images to use for this challenge.
As you will see, I rotated the sketch to fit the image


Items Used:
Digi Stamp ~ Whoopsi Daisy (sheet 412) coloured with Promarkers
Backing papers ~ Doodlebug design Hello Spring
and Dovecraft Back to Basics
Sentiment ~ My Creative Time Teeny Tag Greetings 
Embossing folder ~ Crafts Too Butterflies
Sizzix Die ~ Flowers Lovely
Dienamics Little Open Scallop Border
Small butterfly punch (sorry no name on it, maybe Woodware?)
Distress Ink ~ Tumbled Glass (for sky)
buttons and pearls from stash

Here's the sketch:

If you take a look on the Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of the design team.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
CRAFT Challenge - Easter/Spring
My Heart Pieces Digital Stamps Challenge - Use your favourite 3 things (butterflies, flowers and ribbon)
Allsorts - Springtime
Diva`s by Design Challenge - Buttons and Bows

I hope you all stay safe and warm
Bye for now
Hugs 

Sue
