Spring has Sprung at An Oldie but a Goodie

Good morning. Jack & I are off to Hobbycraft this morning (at Jack's request lol!!!) so I wonder what treats we will return with later???
Thank you to everyone that joined us at An Oldie But a Goodie last time - we had some lovely entries - some non-eligible ones too though so please do check the rules on the sidebar of the main challenge blog - especially this time as Fleur is offering a this gorgeous prize to 1 lucky winner
Oh I wish I could enter myself lol!!!
So the theme for this fortnight is
and this is my DT card

I have used a gorgeous LOTV image - Teddy with Bouquet coloured with PM's in lovely Lilac & Lemon colours that I think scream Springtime.
The DP's are from a really old pad of papers - not quite sure where they came from but the colours are just perfect!
I didn't have the right colour for the flowers so i just coloured white ones with my PM's.
A few brads from stash a touch of Glamour Dust and a sentiment from an old Craft Stamper magazine to finish it off.
Oh and I decided to have a go at a different shaped base card - simply tri-fold a piece of A4 and then fold one of the end panels in half again to create the bottom step:

Challenges I took inspiration from are:

LOTV - Favourite Colours (I adore Lilac & Lemon together)
OSAAT - Anything but Square
Secret Crafter - Fancy Folds
Charisma Cardz - Spring has Sprung
Crafty Sentiments - Lemon & Lilac

Hope you can join us this fortnight.
Thanks for popping over.
