Spring Has Sprung at Double Dutch Dare

It's that time, again, time for our very own Bugaboo Stamps to be on the move! This time, we're sponsoring the Double Dutch Dare Challenge!   Whooo Hoo! That means another wonderful opportunity for you to win a fabulous package of digi's for your prize! But, you can't be the winner if you don't play along, so be sure you do!  The theme is "Spring Has Sprung!" Perfectly fitting for this time of year, isn't it?! Hurry over and link up your creation for your chance to win!

Here's is some Spring Has Sprung inspiration for you:

My project today uses the image, Flowerpot 3, from Bugaboo Stamps, and colored with Promarkers. I went with bright springy colors. I used the sketch at Paper Make Up Stamps, for my card layout. I used this fun polka dotted ribbon from my stash, to spruce up the sides, and add some buttons, recycled from old clothing.  I love the way this came out.  Reminds me of a pair of bib overalls and how my mom used to love them when she was younger!  This is perfect for a Mother's Day card!
