Spring/Easter Inspiration from Polkadoodles

Good morning, I'm really enjoying my week of work but its whizzing by far too quickly. I love this time of year, after the long dark days of winter its great to get outside and potter in the garden. That was the inspiration for this card, my DT project for our Spring/Easter challenge over at Polkadoodles where you've still got a week to enter to be in with a fabby prize!

I've made a Spring themed easel card using a digistamp coloured with Graph'It Markers, papers and lots of embellishments from Sudio 12 Picknix Collection 1 Cd.

I'm no expert at digital crafting at all but I managed to do lots of printing and cutting out lol, I even layered the letters up over one of the gorgeous backing papers in MS Publisher. I've added some wooden buttons, gingham ribbon, twine and one of my bargain poundshop birds nests. I took the eggs out and coloured them with my Graph'It markers

Here's a pic of the main image and all the embellies from the CD. Love those little birds, clouds and fence and how cute are those polkadot flowers? The bunny is a die cut that I had in my stash

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: J is for just as you like
A Little bit crafty: The birds and the bees
Animal Friends: Spring/Easter
Bearly Mine: Spring
Creative Moments: Spring/anything goes
