Sugar Bowl Challenge #7 & Secret Crafter Challenge #24

Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge this week is to base a card on your favourite colour scheme. I love yellow and made a Spring card. Of course I realised it needed other colours to work and I added in a spring-like yellow-green and some orange.
Spring/Easter is also the latest Challenge at the Sugar Bowl, I've used a Leanne Ellis stamp and am entering it for this challenge too.
I've stamped Annie Talking to the Birds several times and paper pieced her onto a yellow background. Her skirt uses the same print that's in the background, the dots on it and the flowers are coloured with Sakura 3D glaze pens, Annie is coloured with watercolour pencils and the birdhouse is paper pieced and mounted on a foam pad. The papers I've used are various free ones that came with magazines, the yellow flower was a magazine freebie and the orange centre is a white flower coloured with a Copic pen - brilliant tip for any shade of flower you need! Spring is in the Air is a clear stamp from Dovecraft and the button next to it was bought at a craft show over a year ago...
