Maypole + Spring Blog Candy!!!

Hello, my crafty friends. Today is a day jam packed with good stuff. It's the weekend-eve (yay!) AND we have a brand new PolkaDooddles challenge AND I'm doing another giveaway. Oh yes!!! It's time for my Spring Blog Candy, folks. But before we get to that, let me show you what I did for this week's PolkaDoodles challenge.

The theme is Spring Flowers and I went on a floral frenzy! PolkaDoodles Cherry Blossom Lane CD has everything you need for this season... gorgeous blooms, pretty papers, scrumptious colours...oh my! Enough chit-chat, here's my card:


I started with a layer of that lovely soft pink floral background paper. Then I added a layer of  some blue floral paper  (to match the blue bow). They look a little pale in the photo, but IRL these are papers are pretty pastels.

In keeping with the floral theme I hoisted a bodacious blue floral bow right on top of the card.  For balance, I popped up the sentiment on some foam tape.

Take a look at those bunnies! Cuter critters under the Maypole you will not find.  I fussy cut the flower border and adhered it below the image ...coz it's all about flowers today. 

And look! More flowers on the inside. This is definitely  a card for a girly-girl friend!
