Spring is here

or at least it was here this weekend. It's so funny every year - as soon as the sun pops up - well then you suddenly see your neighbours again ;-)) Out in the garden, burning leaves, planting seeds etc...hihi....... I guess it's the same everywhere and not only in Sweden.

Well - the Spring feelings this weekend gave me the inspiration to use Cathrine with butterfly for this weeks Try it Out Tuesday. Our project/card should only be made with 2 layers and 2 embellies. That's a very hard challenge for someone like me - that has gone from - only a very limeted numbers of layers and embellies to - well a lot just in 1.5 year ;-))

I was so pleased that I had the lovely DP from the Dovecraft Fantasy pack to create the scene with. They are perfect for projects like this. For the second layer (behind Cathrine) - there I used one of the papers from my "left-over-collection"...hihi.....

I coloured Cathrine with my copics (please don't forget to check out the copic bundles that are available at Susana's). I added some stickles to the flowers on her dress, on her shoes and for the ribbon. I then added vanilla ribbon (from SU) and one single flower from my stash.

There you have it - my 2 embellies :-))

Looking fwd to read your comments and see what you will come up with. Please remember to use the keyword "TIOT11" when you upload your cards on PCP or SCS.
Also - don't forget to check out the cards made by my dear DT friends.

Kram - Anki
