Spring is springing

Oooh, this is an exciting departure for me. It is, of course, inspired by – and completed under instruction by – my supremely talented downline, Kelly. It’s a spring card – and not just because the crocuses are in bloom and pink is quite a springy colour. No, it's a spring card because it folds flat and springs open when you remove it from the envelope.

It was made for one of my April Design Team challenges over on In Love With Stamping. The challenge was to use the colours Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink and Pink Passion – not something that filled my heart with joy, to be honest. But I had a go and here it is. The Pretty in Pink is stamped on the white background using the very useful dotty stamp from a new stamp set called Bird on a Branch.

The bird is punched out using the new Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch from the Mini catalogue which you can order from on 1st April.
