Teddy Bo Tuesday - Spring

It's the first Tuesday of the month which means it's time for some new releases and the start of a new challenge at Teddy Bo.
There are some fabulous new releases which are perfect for your Mother's day and Easter cards, and a few others which are suitable for all occasions.

For the new challenge this month the theme will be
As well as Spring colours and flowers you also have Mother's Day and Easter cards that will fit the Spring theme quite nicely, so plenty of chances to make a card using a Teddy Bo and Co image and enter our challenge to be in with the chance of winning 5 Teddy Bo digi images of your choice.

Once again this week I have two cards using the same image, papers, flowers and embellishments, the only difference is the card shape and dies I used on each card.

I love making flowers for cards and have lots of dies that do the job perfectly, but with the challenge being a Spring theme I really wanted to have a representation of a Daffodil on my cards, so I punched out a daisy  and a 1" circle, shaped the petals of the daisy and cut a spiral into the circle, which I then rolled up using a quilling tool, and attached to the centre of the daisy, not perfect Daffodils, but I thought they looked OK.

Image - TEDDYBO_247 - coloured in Photoshop
Digital Papers - So Egg-cited Scrap Kit - Crazy4Monograms
Die Cut RicRac - Sizzix Borders and hydrangeas die
Tonic mini boot punch - butterfly
Flowers - Tonic regular boot punch - Daisy and 1 inch circle punch
Square Dazzlers, stick on gems and ribbon - Meiflower

For my second card I enlarged the image and then cut the part I wanted to use with a circle die.
Details as above except for the die, this time around I used
Die-namics Photo Corners die and rectangular dazzlers.
