Spring colours

I just love this card so much that I might not be able to give it away! I spent the afternoon making it while I was Skyping my Mum - can't get a better reward for cleaning the house than that, can you?

The paper and card-stock is all DCWV from the Citrus range. The stamp is House Mouse, coloured with Copics of course, with Prima flowers, punches from EK Success and McGill, and of course, Stickles in yellow and lime green. Inside is another little House Mouse stamped with Staz-On straight onto the yellow card and not coloured in. It's even prettier in real life, honest.

The challenges are:
Colour Create: "pastels"
Creatalicious: "two-tone"
Friday Sketchers
House Mouse: "spring"
Truly Scrumptious: "tags"
