The Spring Bringer

With the sun shining and the washing drying on the line my second card of the day just had to be a springtime theme.
For this I used Wee Stamps 'Spring Bringer and again coloured her with Promarkers and added Stickles to her wings and also to the flowers. The paper is from a pad called Floral Fantasy by Louise Tiler and the sentiment stamp was free with a magazine. All the dies are Cheery Lynn - B193 hummingbird, DL112 small butterfly and B152 miniature rose to which I added some liquid pearls for the centres and I also added touches of Stickles to the bird and butterfly. The ribbon, lace and pearls are all from my stash.

I shall enter this in thee following challenges
