Spring Colours

Good Morning.
Hope you are all well and ready for another challenge over at Fantasy Stampers
This week the challenge is to create a card using


We all need a bit of brightening up here in England as the weather this winter has been foul. Spring must soon be on it's way as the lambs are starting to arrive at our friends farm. Not long before the fields will full of bouncy springy lambs.

It is my sister's birthday soon so I made her a card for this weeks DT theme.

I used some papers from my stash which I've had for awhile, not even sure of the make but they could be from DoCrafts. I used the sketch from this fortnight's Sketch n Stash with a little tweek. I rotated it 90 and used a square on it's point instead of a rectangle and had Tilda create the vertical. The stamp is Happy Tilda from the Raising the Roof collection. Ribbon as always from the mountainous stash! The flourish is from a set of Marianne dies I got for Christmas and not used as yet. The flowers were from my stash of die cuts I like to keep on hand. If I have time I use all my odds n sods to make flowers as they always come in useful. The daisies are made by layering a white n pale green daisy die cut together then the center was Cosmic Shimmer glue sprinkled with yellow Fun Flock.
As usual I coloured Tilda with my Copics as follows:-

Hair- YR31,24,Y26, E25
Skin- E000,00,11,15, R20
Trousers- BG10,23,72
Top- RV000,02,13

Well that's about it folks.I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
