My Time To Craft GDT - Spring Flowers

It's Saturday and time for another of my GDT challenges over at 

and this week's theme is 

'Spring Flowers'

I've used a Pre-Coloured Topper from LOTV - English Charm Pad...  

I'm not very happy with this card... I've made such a mess of the embellies.... and it's way too busy! I didn't have time to make another one though, so thought I'd grin and bear it and post it anyway. 
It does follow the theme at least! Lol :-J

Papers: Trimcraft - Riverbank Revels
Die: Memory Box Open Stitched Rectangle
Border: Tonic Studio Punch Vine
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Butterfly, Ribbon, Gems from Stash

Hope you can join us and pop over to My Time To Craft to see the rest of the team's gorgeous Spring Flower creations!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last card... it's lovely to read such positive feedback... I'm hoping my crafting mojo will be back with me again this weekend as I'm working on something Christmassy!! :-))
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. 
Take care 
Love and Hugs

A really stunning vibrant card Sue, just what's needed to cheer us up, the weather here has been dull with rain after brilliant sunshine at the beginning of the week. Love the beautiful Spring flowers and how your embellishments pick out several from the image, the dragonfly is perfect to finish off with. Hope you are well enjoy the rest of the weekend hugs Meg

Pia S said...

You know, I understand what you mean, I've had that feeling about some of my cards too. But rest assured, I don't see here what you're feeling, as I think you've balanced the patterns and colors and the embellies go so well with this layout and design. I think it looks beautiful, Sue!

Babs said...

Your card is full of all the colours of summer so beautiful and looks perfect to me..x

MagsB said...

I think this is absolutely fine, Sue! The flower bouquet is really pretty, and the dragonfly is adorable! It's so easy to be our own worst critics. (though between you and me I did a card recently for another DT that was great in my mind but in reality was just too fussy. Live and learn, eh?) Your card is lovely, hun!

love Mags B x
