Make My Monday week 39 Spring

Evening everyone and a special welcome to two new followers, Donna H and Lunar10575. Well no baby news yet I'm afraid but every time the phone rings I jump!!
The theme this month at MMM is SPRING and the challenge this week is SPRING FLOWERS.
Now I knew immediately what I wanted to do, not that that always works out! Paulette at TLC had some lovely papers last week and yesterday she had a spring sentiment and on Saturday the amazing Vicky Hayes (check out her fabulous blog) used the SU bird and branch punch to make tulips from the wings.
So this is what emerged today:)


The base card is 6" square and the papers from TLC I resized in Craft Artist. I pop dotted the sentiment and added some glitter to the centre of the flowers. The ribbon is from Mei Flower and the tulips were made from the wings that I punched out. I cut the leaves free hand. I added a punched edge to finish.
Check out the fabulous DT cards on the MMM blog they are gorgeous!

I hope to have news of  my first grandchild on your next visit, you can be sure I will be letting everyone know!!!
Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully leaving a comment:)
