Welcome Lovely Bloggers, Crafters, Nosy Parkers and Friends lol It is always lovely when you pay my blog a visit.

Today see's the Mid-Way Inspiration for Challenge #30 - Spring Fling over on the

Left Of Center Creative Challenges offer fortnightly challenges. We have a post at the start of the challenge and then a mid-way inspirational post a week later. 
We have a set theme, however if you choose to make something alternative/dark/gothic/punk etc then you can do an anything goes make. 

We have a HUGE amount of AMAZING sponsors and this Challenge is Sponsored by the very talented Delicious Doodles.

Challenge #30 launched a week ago , so this is just a little added inspiration to hopefully encourage you to join in with the fun. 
You don't have to make something alternative/dark etc, you can make what ever style you want, as long as it fits our themes. 
Left Of Center also has a facebook group, that we would love you to join. This group is to show your Left Of Center makes and chat to like minded crafty people

Well, here is what I made... The image is called Lilleth

I coloured the image with my WHSmiths colouring pencils. I tried to use as many brighter colours as possible. I backed the image and the textured lilac backing paper with a dark green card.
I coloured the image and sentiment a couple of times so I could cut out elements to decoupage for depth to the card.

The flowers I used a large embossing tool to round the petals to give these dimension and depth. I diecut some swirls and leave sprigs to allow the foliage theme to spill out onto the card. 

I LOVE the brightness to this card, and I think it represents spring perfectly. 

I hope you will all join the Spring Fling Challenge over on the Left Of Center Creative Challenges Blog....Remember, it doesn't have to be dark!!

Thank you for your constant support and encouragement
