Betsy - Spring has sprung

Hello everyone - Betsy here today to share a couple of cards with you, the first being my interpretation of Tanya Leigh's sketch for this month, also the challenge which is Spring has sprung.
Thinking of Spring, reminded me of a lovely verse found in Song of Songs, 2: 12.13, which is so indicative of this time of year. " Flowers appear on the earth, the season of singing is come... The fig tree forms its early fruit, the blossoming vines spread their fragrance..." It is such a lovely time of year!!
This is my first time for updating Artfullcraft's blog, as Liz has previously done it for me. So here goes - hope it all works!!

The papers used in this first card are from DCWV, Lemon Flower Stack. The colours in the stack remind one of Spring - delicious!! For cutting the border I used a Martha Stewart punch and for the label I used a Spellbinders labels die. The flourish was cut with a Cheery Lynne die which is lovely and delicate.Kaisercraft flowers I love, just using a little glimmermist to highlight them. The photo is one I found on the web.

This next card was made specifically for a friend, as an order. Oh! how I love my Grand Calibur!! It has been used to cut out this easel card and again I have used the Lemon Flower Stack from DCWV. Maybe you've guessed, by now, that I love these papers as well! My favourite doily die is the Cheery Lynn Italian die which I have used here. Other than that, the supplies used on this card are the same as the previous one.I hope the recipients enjoy getting this card as much as I enjoyed making it.

I'm sure you can all see Spring in it, as it is the theme for this month. Why don't you ladies have a go at the challenge - you could be a winner and it is all fun.
Thank you for checking this out - hope I haven't bored you all too much.
May you all experience God's blessings and the lovely weather.
