Spring Flowers and Easter Chicks

Warm Hugz with flowers and leaves - it was a really lovely Hugz from the Heart challenge set to celebrate the end of winter: The first Day of Spring - Viv provided the templates for two flowers and two leaves, the group was to use both shapes and attach them together. The project went really well until I did something rather silly ... I somehow missed the 'attach them together' bit (lol) ... in the end the challenge ended in two creations which I really enjoyed - thank you, Viv, for your brilliant projects!

A Bunch of Flowers

white linen textured card for printing
papers - Mind's Eye, BasicGrey, Kraft and brown corrugated card from my stash
images - Graphics Fairy, Antique Images, Lenny'sAlice in Wonderland, Digital Collage Sheets
Lady Birds/ribbon - from my stash
Quickutz circle

The Easter Chick image is a combination of Graphics Fairy egg nest with wonderful subtle spring colours and Antique Images chickens. I really enjoyed to create the graphic
Please feel free to use it but you also might want to have a go yourself as it is great fun to play with these images. (lol)
For the second flower I chose the White Rabbit (from Lenny's Alice in Wonderland images where you will find an extensive range of Alice graphics) which is quite an interesting character with his little trumpet, paper roll and fancy coat. The daffodil background is from a digital collage sheet from Digital Collage Sheets.
Both images are layered on various patterend papers with chalked edges.

Hanging Flowers

For the hanging and attached (lol) flowers I used the same images, papers and embellishments but arranged them slightly different and added a little hanger from raffia.

Now I cannot wait to see the next challenge (lol) ... till then .... enjoy the sunshine, Petra.
