Spring Colours with Polkadoodles

Hello! I'm here with another inspiration post for the current challenge over at Polkadoodles, this time it's spring colours and it's so good to see the bright and pretty shades after winter. I love all the spring flowers that are popping up now and making everywhere look less bleak.

Anyway, I used the lovely Winnie Sugar Sprinkles for my latest card, I saw a die being shown on one of the craft channels and thought as it was not intricate I could cut something similar on my Cameo so even though I am not someone who designs on the machine I could manage a few squares.

This is the outer of the card and as you can see it is cut to form a couple of flaps, this is stuck down on toop of the backing paper around the outside edge. I ran a bit of ribbon across the bottom layer and also on the top layer to define them.  I then added an image and some embellishments underneath as in the second picture.
The card is a 6x6 and I added a few gems in two of the corners, a butterfly and the flower with the word Hi! inside so it will be fine for any occasion.

I am entering this into the following challenges;
A bit more Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Card Mania - Polkadots and/or stripes
