Spring Sweet Pea card

I thought this stamp would be perfect for the challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers where the theme is use your favourite sweet pea image and also for In a Sweet Pea dream where the challenge is 'Warmer Weather'.

I love this stamp, 'Magical Springtime' by Elaine Cox although if I'm really honest whichever stamp I'm colouring is my favourite as I love all my Sweet Pea stamps lol. She is coloured in promarkers and has glittered wings. I've cut her out with a nestie and matted her on some lime card. The bps are from my stash and i've cut 2 doileys with a Marianne die from the floral bp. The paper flowers are from my stash and I've added some glittered circles to the centres. I love this limeade Martha Stewart glitter, is a really gorgeous colour (it was in my fabby parcel of blog candy from the lovely Audrey - she has some more amazing candy up for grabs so pop over to her blog and check it out!!). To finish off i've added a sentiment (stamp from HOTP) and some green faux pearls.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: At the bottom of my garden lives.....
Crafty Purple Frog: A touch of magic
Hannah and friends: Purple + 1 other colour
Oldie but goodie: Spring is in the air

Thanks for popping by today. Spring doesn't seem far away now as the trees in the garden have little green buds and the first daffodils are in bud so hopefully the long winter is nearly over :-) It won't be long and I'll be able to get out in the garden and get good and muddy! I wonder why I love messy things - inky/painty crafting, pottering round in the garden?? I suppose I'm just a big kid at heart lol.
