A Snazzy Challenge

It's time again for a challenge over on the Snazzy's DT Blog
The theme this time is
'Spring Colours'
One lucky winner will get an Echo Park (Spring Collection) prize along with some small co-ordinating ink pads.
 For my piece I worked with the very beautiful Prima 'Almanac' Papers on a kraft coloured card.
 I just used lots of the elements from the different papers cut out and arranged.
The only add on's were a smidge of rock candy crackle on the eggs, some rock candy distress stickles and a prima art tile. {all available from Snazzy's}
As you may be able to tell I photographed the card when we actually had 'spring like' weather lol
This isn't my usual style but it was lots of fun deciding what elements to use and how to place them, and I am really pleased how it turned out, so much so that I also made a scrapbook layout, but i'll share that another time.
So dust off the wet and windy blues and think spring fresh, I look forward to seeing your entries.
Stay Inky

You're right Nicky, this isn't your usual style, but I'm lovin' it. Great colour combo going on there with that kraft card.

Great job

This looks fab Nicky! Those papers are gorgeous and so versatile. Wish we had daisies in our bit of lawn. All we get are blooming dandelions and they're not nearly so pretty, lol!
