Spring is multi-sprung!

I got down to business with making an Easter card the other evening, and decided to follow the fab sketch for the Double Dutch Challenge #14. This sketch really appealed to me as it demanded a number of papers, and I remembered that I have got a number of co-ordinating spring-like papers that came free with issue 1 of Creative Cardmaking magazine . I was also able to do something different with the 3 little dots on the sketch, as the magazine freebie included some cute matching die cut butterflies - I don't normally use these giveaways but those ones were rather better than the average imho.

I would also like to enter this card for a few other challenges - hence the title that spring is multi-sprung!
Created by Hand - Easter or Easter Eggs
Cute Card Thursday#54 - citrus colours

Here is a pic of the inside of the card, where I used another free diecut greeting from the magazine.

I used:
Stamps: Penny Black "Duckling" and "Happy Easter";
Colouring media: watercolour pencils;
Papers: all free with issue 1 of Creative Cardmaking magazine, inc. butterflies and inside greeting;
Supplies: ribbon and brad from my stash.
