Fabulous Friday - Is it Spring yet?!

Happy Friday everyone!  The answer to the title question - Nope!  Not here in Canada anyways :-)

We are struggling to get Spring going, with temperatures warming up one day, then bitter cold the next!

Polkadoodles Challenges are now Always Anything Goes, so why not come along and enter.

Thinking of Spring always makes me think of wonderful pastel colours and pretty flowers.  For my card this week I have used the adorable Helga Hippo collection and one of the Design Sheets from this.

I added some depth to the card by placing some elements on foam tape. This Design sheet can also be purchase as a set of 2 to download, Helga Hippo Design Sheet 3 Duo Download.

For the inside of the card, I added a message panel and cut using the Polkadoodles Elegant Nesting Dies, the middle size.  My card is just 4" by 4" as I am making set of them to go in a gift box :-)

The small bottom flower, flower on her head and the teeny tiny butterfly have had some Glossy Accents added.

All the edges of all the layers have been inked.  I love using the pre-coloured elements and with the Design sheets you have everything you need to make a delightful card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
