My Spring swap card for Wendy

This is the card I made for Wendy, I love this image that Betty gave us for the swap. 

I accidently bought the wrong card to use with my promarkers and ended up with a mottled effect, although I liked it on the dress as it added texture. 

I used the trace function on my cameo to print and cut the digi which took some time to work out but I love that I don't have to hand-cut the images because I'm rubbish at cutting around images and have ruined so many after colouring them. I also cut the card out with the cameo, its so nice have so many different options for card bases now at the touch of a button (even if it drives me nuts sometimes and I end up wasting paper because I'm still learning). I can't believe Wendy and I made the same card base, especially as I'd never made one like this before, great minds hee hee. 

I added some punched flowers to her basket with liquid pearl centres and the paper roses were a gift from a friend who had them left over from her wedding stationary. I kept it quite simple as I wanted the image to stand out, I'm really happy with how she turned out in the end. 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges 

The digi reminded me of a lovely day we went cycling in March last year, it was such a difference from this year when it snowed!!
