The Paper Shelter Challenge #154 Spring Is Here

It's time for another The Paper Shelter challenge today and have we got a good one for you this week - Spring Is Here and yes it surely is. The weather is much warmer here in the UK and don't need my thick winter coat any more when I go out and some days I don't even need a coat at all! I just love the warmer weather - makes me so much happier!

Anyway on to the challenge...I used the cute Spring Elves for this one and it did take a while to colour in as there's so many different elements to it, but I had lots of fun doing so.

And don't forget the fabulous prize that is on offer this week as well...

I'm also entering this into A Random Fan's Challenge #6 to use pastel colours.
