Spring is in the Air!

Woohoo! craft room is finished, well apart from a few little things, like my new blind arriving and it was cream and not the white one I ordered, so having to wait for the right one to be delivered and I asked hubby for an extra shelf yesterday which he will hopefully be putting up today, I am hoping to be able to take some pics tomorrow so that I can show you how it looks - I love it!

It's time for out monthly challenge over on Paper Creator and this time around the theme is
Spring is in the Air
and with the trees on the park opposite being full of blossom and my daffodils coming up in the garden I think it definitely is.
You don't have to use Paper Creator products to play along with the challenge, but if you do you get an extra entry into the draw, with a chance of winning a £10 voucher to spend in store.

I am going to call my card a 'see thru stepper card' as you can see through the little window to the back of the card which I have decorated with flowery paper to represent wallpaper so that it looks like you are looking into the room beyond.
I made an organza double looped bow and thought it looked a little bit like a butterfly so added some antennae and gems for the body.
