My first spring-time card of 2011


I can't wait for Spring, I really can't. I love the slightly chilly mornings with the bright blue sky, long walks in the woods looking at all the new growth on the trees... And of course there's Easter, who doesn't like Easter!

I have made this card with a new Bildmalarna stamp I bought recently from Dies to Die for. I absolutely love it, the lil bears are soooo cute. I have used some of the fab seam binding now available at Crafty Ribbons. I have scrunched it up before using to give it an aged look.
.
If you haven't already please do enter my candy here, I have 45 metres of seam binding to giveaway!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
MSE Scatty Jan Bingo challenge - yellow, punch (I've used a die hope that's ok) and flowers
.
Supplies:
Image - Sweet Climbers by Bildmalarna from Dies to Die For
Papers - Sparkling Spring by Prima from Dies to Die For
Buttons - Papermania
Seam binding - Sunshine by Crafty Ribbons (this is my fave colour)
Tools - Marianne Designs swirl die, Deckel Edge Nestie die, scissors for distressing
