Spring has sprung!!

I have just got hold of some dies from Spellbinders and X-Cut and just needed to try them out.  I am an avid die cutter, using my Black Cat for most things I make but for the sake of speed I thought I would give these dies a try and run them through my Cuttlebug.  I have also had a stash of flowers for some time but not really used them, however today, after having chosen to use a lovely DP paper with lilies on I found some lilies in my stash, yep, they had to go on the card too along with some yellow roses and green leaves.  A fun card to make, not my usual style but experimenting can be such fun <g>

  • White Linen card from Craft Creations
  • Digi - Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Shirley'
  • DP papers, ribbon, brads and flowers from my stash
  • Spellbinder die - fantastic flourish two
  • X-Cut - large tags
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
