Spring Card

I received my order from Ann's Paper Art webshop and in it was this beautiful new die by Joy Crafts.
Immediately I wanted to bring it to life combining it with one of Ann's  fabulous patterns.
I stitched pattern a287 with my  Mettler Polysheen threads 
1220, 1332, 5833.
The die is by Joy! Crafts called 'Billie" 6002/289.
 I love the edging and lattice on this die.
I die cut the inserts in green and placed them back in the spaces, I die cut extra's and added them between the leaves.
I gently added distress ink "forest moss" around the outer edge of the die.
The tulips from Le Suh decoupage sheet 777-397 fitted perfectly in the centre.
Behind the lattice I added some paper from my stash.
Hobbydots have been used to decorate the card.

For those of you in Winter I thought that this card would cheer you up with the feeling of Spring.
This was such a fun card to create.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.
