Hello, today there is a new challenge at the Lovely Hanglar challenge blog and here is my design team card. The challenge is 'Spring has sprung' and I have used spring colours for my celebration card. We have news too - from now on you can use Hanglar or Magnolia stamps for the challenges so hopefully more people can join in with us :)

The gorgeous papers are from this digital kit at Sweet Shoppe Designs, little Hanglar has been coloured with Copics and I used lace, twine, button and those sweet little heart shaped pearls from the Ribbon Girl. The doily die and sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the tag die is a DooHickey
