Die-namites April Sketch Challenge

I'm still playing with spring colours, flowers, and birds today!  Welcome everyone!

Here is the darling sketch that's up on Die-namites' blog this month, along with a colour dare:

Bo Bunny's "Madeleine" paper fit the dare perfectly!!

I did a few alterations on one of my Die-namites dies, in order to make my basket full of flowers.  I took "Spring Basket" and removed the eggs.  Then I cut off the handle and bow, and flipped the bow over to the other side of the patterned paper.

For the flowers that fill the basket I used the "Pretty Blooms" die and cut them out in green and one of the coordinating patterned papers.

I didn't like the white lines that were showing up on the paper, so I took a copic marker and coloured the whole thing.  I like the effect I got with some of the pattern still showing through but in a much more subdued way now.

Throw in a few pretty embellishments and a little bit of stenciling... and this card is ready to hit the mail!

I haven't played over at Flying Unicorn, in far too long, so I decided to also enter this card in the "Made with Love - Anything Goes" challenge.

Both of these challenge go until the end of the month - so why not check them out!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
