Welcome Spring

It is March and time for another great monthly challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu  .  The theme this month is spring colours or Easter.  I made this spring card for my girlfriend's birthday.  

The tulip stamp is an old stamp from my collection made by PSX.  I have had the stamp in my collection for probably 15 years.  I coloured the image with my Copics, gell pen and pencil crayon and then added a sentiment, a ribbon, butterfly, gems, and a doily. 

Hope you join our challenge this month.  Remember  to visit our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative month.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Girls Corner - Add a Ribbon
Frills and Funky - Spring
Inspiration Destination- Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
