Challenge #107 - The Paper Shelter - "Spring Delights"

Good Morning Crafters, when is Spring going to start, my garden has some crocus out and a few daffodils in but its so depressing as normally at this time of the year more green would be showing on our bushes and trees, but here in Gloucestershire everything seems to be on hold I do hope it soon warms up and starts to feel warmer, lets hope it wont be long.
Anyway todays Challenge over at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is I hope the start of this process as we want to see some "Spring Delights" on your cards, colour, image and even hopefully some flowers and as usual our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering you a fabulous prize of $30.
And this is providing you have used one of their images on your card, but even if you havent they are still going to give you three images of your own choice. Ive also got some brilliant news as we are nearing a 1000 followers and once weve hit that target they are going to offering you some really fabulous prizes, and we are only 4 people away from that magic time.
And now here is my card for this weeks Challenge I hope you like it.

Isnt she cute and this image is called "Enchanted Love" and you will find her here, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I have used Nestabilitie Die No.7 to cut her out then drawn around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one of my stash and its been then stamped onto a white card and cut out with a tag die, and I have created the mount in the same way as the image's mount by drawing around the die and then cutting out.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, and papers I have used are from The Paper Shelters "Zoe's Spring Papers" quite appropriate and you will find them here. I have then placed a very pretty pink one for my first mount is has flowers all around the edge of it, then used a green paper and a large doily die from Create, and placed it on top in the center.
The mounted image was then placed towards the top left hand corner and the tag sentiment tucked behind it at the top on the right. I then used several swirl dies on some green card and also used a Joy die to create the leaf sprays and created a corner at the bottom on the right hand side. Afterwards I used several rolled flower dies to create the flowers, then placed them at different places in different sizes along the whole length of the spray.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this weeks "Spring Delights" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Absolutely gorgeous card Shirley the design is perfect, the flowers, colours and image look awesome. I am giving up on my garden this year, Jess is enjoying herself trapping over it, I have dug up all the Bluebell bulbs as they are poisonous so I will not have much colour, lol. I really don't mind
