Spring Has Sprung

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well.  Been a bit of a funny day for weather today.  Heavy rain showers, wind,  and a touch of sunshine thrown in for good measure.  Be glad when summer arrives - well, if it does.  Not sure the summer sunshine knows where the UK is lol.
Sorry for the lateness of this post but this full time working does get in the way of my crafting time.

Used lots of bright spring time colours for this creation.  This tulip image has been in my stash since the beginning of last year.  It actually came as a decoupage image but I have just used the bottom layer.  I love tulips and this image just sang springtime to me. I matted it onto coredinations cardstock which I just love.  The papers are all from Papermania and I just love them.  Used some lace and ribbon across the centre of the card and topped it with a yummy bow.  Finishing touches were the butterfly (Mariannes die), a die cut swirl (Mariannes), some little flowers and lots of pearls.  I also added a little butterfly charm dangling from the bow.
Here is another photo of the bottom corner:
