Spring Flowers in Autumn!

We had a sunny and warm Autumn weekend in Melbourne on the weekend.  I wanted to tackle the third HA April sketch - the one with a tag. I also love the colours of the current Play Date Cafe Challenge - Daffodil...Hydrangea...Kiwi...Cherry and decided to combine the two.

This card gave me the opportunity to use my new HA stamp sets (Four Flowers and Be Happy) and also the lovely new papers from the Basic Grey Picadilly collection. The washi tape (yes, I need to mention that my sister got it from Japan...) made an appearance too. All colour elements in the Play Date Cafe 127 are present. Thanks for dropping by! I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamp challenge - April Showers bring Spring Flowers, most appropriate card for this challenge. By the way, this is my tenth blog post since I started 4 weeks ago, I'm really enjoy all the feedback I have been getting! Thank you for stopping by!

Paper: Basic Grey Picadilly, coloured vellum
