FCCB Challenge #153 Spring is in the air

Happy wet and windy Monday !!

Challenge #153
Spring is in the Air ...

...Or at least is should be...

Over at FCCB we are celebrating all things spring like with balloons and kites, we'd love you to pop over and play along with us

These freebie papers popped through the letter box just as I was deciding what to do for the challenge
so I didn't even get as far as raiding my stash 

I used Artiste Cartridge for all my cricut cuts, layering the balloon with foam pads and pushing the paper down to make it look rippled

Spring means flowers and so I cut  out several different types with some leaves and used a strip of left over paper to make the messy dimensional carnationy ones lol

I layered the background with more freebie papers, bits of scrap ribbon, drew some fake stitching on and added a few gems ... if only finding the sun was that easy !!

We are due snow again tomorrow so they say...Happy days !!
