Fussy & fancy Friday Challenge #85

Well here it is at last my first card as part of the Fussy & Fancy DT I was relieved when I found out the subject was Spring Days, after some thought I was in the garden and realised that all the new Spring flowers, Daffs, crocuses and primroses were all shades of yellow and purple so that was my inspiration. I always make an Easter card for my mum in law who is 92 and as her eyesight is poor I like to make 'touchy feely' cards for her, plenty of textures and strong colours this is my card for You and Her....

I began with the centrpiece, forming an oval on white card with Heartfelt Creations Scalloped Posy die, as this is semicircular I cut it twice leaving a gap in the middle where the ribbon band was to go, I backed it with lemon pearlised card. Then I mounted this on a purple mat cut with another die in the same set, this in turn was put onto a white mat which I had embossed with  spellbinders Garden Lattice M-bossibilities folder, a piece of white silky crush ribbon was wrapped around the centre.
The flowers were made using various spellbinders dies apart from the daffodil which is a Marie Curie charity flower I recycled.
I  tried various ways of putting the sentiment on and then found this Easter  ribbon in my stash, the finishing touch was the little 3D butterfly made from Fantasy film. I am adding a couple of closeups of the flowers & butterflies....

Hope you like it and I look forward to seeing your creations for this challenge ...
Bye for now ...Annie xxx
