Spring has Sprung!!

Morning all!!

Its Thursday which means another fab challenge over at Charisma Cardz! Todays challenge has been set by the very lovely Vee, who has chosen:


What a fab challenge!! We are also being sponsored this week by Digi Stamp Boutique, so we have some lovely images to play with this week.

As I am not any good at colouring in, I decided to print and cut out on different coloured paper, which I have now found out is called Paper Piecing - don't you just love it when you learn something new?!!

Here is my creation:

Recipe: DCWV Spring Matstack, Digi Stamp Boutique Sping Coco image, Martha Stewart border punch.
