The challenge over at As You See It this week is .. click on the image to be taken to their site.

 They want us to complete the phrase and say what our favourite thing about Spring is and then make a card!  Tricky?  Not when I had Mediterranean Moments stamp set.

 My favourite thing about Spring is the warmer weather and being able to sit outdoors.  I love this image in this stamp set and I can just imagine sitting at this table with a glass of something light and fizzy, yes ok I mean Prosecco and enjoying the warm sun.  Its been a glorious weekend this weekend in the UK with lots of lovely warm sun befitting my card - and its making us all feel summer is on its way.

I've chosen to make an Easel card as I think it helps to show the image off a bit better.  The other stamp set I've used for the wording is Project Life Date It!  I think Project Life sets often get overlooked and they are great for words.

 I've used some of the gorgeous Falling In Love Designer Series paper with that wonderful Bokeh imagery and a touch of our lovely Lace Trim ribbon.  The butterfly was punched with the small butterfly punch.

A touch of Wink of Stella on the tablecloth and Dazzling Diamonds on the butterfly finishes off this card.

Ahh Fiona, as I sit here on a bleak autumn day, your vision of a warm terrace and a fizzy something is very, very inviting! The bokeh paper you've used is a great backdrop as it brings in those warm, fuzzy colours without detracting from your central image. Thanks so much for joining us at As You See It for our Spring theme challenge.

This is a great fold for this project, Fiona. The background paper gives it such a dream-like feel which is just right for the thought of a Mediterranean get-away! I could do with one of those this spring! You've done a lovely job with your colouring! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenges!

I love easel cards for showing off beautiful art cards. This card is no less than that, beautiful art. So inviting, that table, I wish I could sit at it with my afternoon coffee today. Thank you for playing along with us at the As you See It Challenge blog and for giving me hopes of warmer weather to come!
