The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Spring Colours.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s the pretty Lazy Days by Crafty Sentiments Designs.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers then fussy cut.I created a frame and gave her a ribbon covered border to perch on.It also allows the delightful paper to show through.The embossing at the bottom has been sanded to enhance the pattern and I hand pierced it to create a little more interest.The flowers and leaves are die cut from felt.A few gems have been scattered around to bling it up.
