Spring is in the air!

Hello again, i promised i'd be back!
I've had the most lovely relaxing crafty day, i've had the house to myself for 4 glorious hours and what have i done - bugged you lot lol!
I bought some fab papers yesterday they are by "scrapcake" - never heard of them before but I love them. I had to make a card straight away and decided to use one of my new Lillies and make a "spring" birthday card.
Whilst scouting through my reading list I came across this sketch:
 
I couldn't believe it but it matched one sheet from my new DP pad perfectly!!!
I stamped my image and coloured it with promarkers.  I then decided I was going to make my VERY FIRST shaker card! Oh m this was so fiddly but i managed it by using and empty double sided tape roll, i filled it with little butterflies made with a Martha Stewart Punch.

The Ribbon is from a mini kit from The Ribbon Girl and the pearls are from The Hobby House.
The sentiments are rub on's which came free with a magazine.  The kraft card is Bazzil.

This is a different style of card but overall I'm quite pleased with it.

The inside has been decorated to compliment the front.

I really hope my card qualifies for the Sketch over at The Sketchy Challenges.

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great Easter break

Love and hugs
xx Cara xx
