Charisma Cardz DT - Spring has sprung!!

Morning all my sweet stamping friends!! Well can you believe it's Thursday again and time for a brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz? Today the lovely Vee has chosen our theme and it is "Spring has Sprung", how I wish that were actually true hehe!! This winter has felt extra long and cold this year but hey ho it is almost spring woohooo and I can't wait lol!

This week I decided to use one of my much neglected hAnglers, isn't she sweet? Wish there were more hours in a day to play with all my favourite stamps rofl!

I have coloured my image in with my much loved Copics. The dps are "Love Letters" by First Edition paper and wow are they lush, beautifully embossed and glittered. The swirl is a Magnolia doohickey and the ticket sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. I decided to make a little mini hAngler which I did on shrink plastic and hung from the sentiment. The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as if I need to tell you hehe and the pearls are from my stash. I've sprayed the flowers with some Crafters Companion glitter spray. I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Just Magnolia - Sketch
Lovely hAngler only - Take two
Bunny Zoe's - Spring ... flowers everywhere
Colour Create - Chocolate, strawberry & cream
Crafty Cardmakers - Spotlight on plastic (my shrink plastic charm)
Paperplay - Add shine
Truly Scrumptious - Swirls & pearls
