March Challenge - Spring Colours

Hello everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Today is the start of a new monthly challenge at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog. It was Mina's turn to choose this months theme and she has asked us to use spring colours.
My first card shape was designed and cut on the Cameo. I then embossed the whole card with dots embossing folder and added a layer of blue basil, then a picot circle cut from yellow basil. I stamped my image, (Spring Bouquet by All Night Media), onto a plain circle die cut and coloured with Pro Markers, then added some gems from my stash. The pretty leaf pins and ribbons for my bow, are from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. Ribbons are - 16mm Blue Mesh and 15mm Green Organza.
My second card was also cut on the Cameo. I added DP by DCWV. I then cut three sizes of Spellbinder labels twenty. The largest label was cut from DCWV DP, the two smaller ones were die cut then stamped with JustRite stamps from the Fleur De Lis Labels Twenty set. I used Aurora brilliance pigment ink and clear embossing powder. My bow and ruffle were both made with 25mm pink satin ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
Do pop over to the blog and take a look at my team mates lovely creations. Why not join in the fun, and the chance of winning something pretty?

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges...
Card 1 - CES Challenge - Flower Frenzy
Card 1 - The Cuttlebug Spot - Spring is in the Air
Card 1 - Make My Monday - Spring Flowers
Card 2 - JustRite Friday Challenge 067 - Birthday Bash

Both Cards - St. Luke's Charity Card Challenge - Spring into Spring
Thanks for stopping by xx
