Be Happy :-)

Hello friends,
I hope you none of you was an April fool (someone fooled me but it is too embarrassing to tell).
Last month I won a giveaway hosted by one of my favorite blogger Ann Martin who has a lovely blog called all things paper where she shares inspiring ideas, tutorials and has the best guest artists.
I made these roses using Ann's tutorial
I won my choice of quilling strips from Diane Boden Crane of THE  JJ Quilling design, Diane was kind enough to send me two quilling needles and glue though that was not part of the win.
I love the graduated strips that give you coils that are dark on the outside and light on the inside and I used a purple on on this card.

The butterfly was punched with the small Fiskar's butterfly punch.
Be happy today as you enjoy all the flowers outside and hope we all get lucky with giveaways.

Challenges for my card.
Anything challenge- Make your won embellishment.
Shelly's images- get punchy (used two butterfly and heart)
Heart to Heart challenges- spring has sprung.
There is magic in the air- let us use flowers.
Dream valley challenges- things with wings.
 I Did it creations- anything goes.
All sorts challenge- blooming blossoms

Lots of hugs.
