Ching-Chou Kuik April Challenge - Use Kraft Card

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This month our challenge for you is to use kraft card. If you don't have any kraft coloured card, you can always use some very similar brown coloured card.

I didn't colour on kraft like many of my fellow DT members, simply because I forgot to take some card to work to print on and my own printer is pretty naff! It doesn't print very well and smears even after lots of drying time or drying it with my heat gun. So instead I used kraft card as my mounts.

I used the gorgeous Orchid in Spring for this one and some of my new patterned papers.

This card is also for
613 Avenue Create's Challenge #170 Anything Goes (Didn't do the optional twist this time)
Clear It Out Challenge to use Springtime and add a flower (I have flowers on my image, ribbon and patterned papers)
Unicorn Challenge #8 Favourite Time of the Year (I love late Spring/early Summer when all the flowers are out and the butterflies come to visit the garden! Plus  no longer have to wear a coat every time I go outside LOL)
