Zing into Spring at Get Funky

Good morning - it's my turn to share with you my card for Lou's Zing Into Spring challenge at Get Funky this  month.
I have used the gorgeous Freebie DP that Anice is offering this month - go grab yours from here - it's perfect for this challenge!
I also used some co-ordinating DP's from the 'Marching On' range on the Craft the Year Away Papercraft CD rom - available here to create my concertina flower and punched butterflies.
The fab 'tape' sentiment has also been done using the Craft the Year Away CD.

To create the flower I used a strip of Design Paper - 29cm x 3cm and score at 1cm intervals all along the length. Then mountain and valley fold (concertina fold) and secure the ends together to form a circle. Put a small 'blob' of glue where you would like to adhere your flower and 'squish'the circle down onto the glue. I added a 1" punched circle with a co-ordinating button to the centre to finish it off.
A touch of Diamond Stickles has been added to bring it to life and that's it done!
Hope you can join in the funky fun with us - you have until 14th April so still lots if time.
Thanks for popping by.
Have a great day.
