Ching-Chou Kuik March Challenge Easter or Spring

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge over at Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This month our challenge is Easter or Spring, so we would love to see some of your Spring or Easter themed projects.

I used the gorgeous Love in Spring image for my card and made a slightly bigger one than usual using a pre-made 6.75" square card base. I do like how much more room you get with this size base, so must add some more on to my shopping list! I use A4 sized card and the biggest size card I can make out of it is a 5.75" square card and that extra inch makes all the difference!

I added lots of dies to this one as I rediscovered some that I had bought before Christmas and had left in a carrier bag, so I thought I would put them to good use! I have a HUGE collection of dies, so I am regularly re-discovering ones I haven't used for a while. I did forget to photo the sentiment which is on the tag with the lace that is sitting behind the image layer.

This card is also for
