Here is the card I made for the "Fred, She Said" Blog Hop!

(My card today fits the following Challenges: Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, Crafty Calendar Challenge, S2G Challenge, A Spoonful of Sugar, Crazy 4 Challenges, Rosie-D's Challenge, AllSorts Challenge, Our Creative Corner, Totally Gorjuss, Crafty Catz, Stampin' for the Weekend, and Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog)

My card uses the "Spring Flowers" image by Fred, She Said, as well as the "Pricking Pattern" that uses the Nestabilities Labels 8 die! I printed both the pricking pattern and the daffodils on Whisper White cardstock. I cut the daffodils out and colored them with Copic Markers. After pricking the pattern, I sponged Memento Summer Sky and New Sprout inks on the pricked pattern. I used the large fan punch by Martha Stewart to frame the images, and I used glittery cardstock for extra sparkle. I finished the card off with a pretty bow , a sparkly sticker butterfly and rhinestones. Card size: 5 x 5 1/4 inches
