CES and Basic Grey Challenges - Flowers!

Double DT day today and fortunately I was able to combine the challenges as I didn't have time to make two cards!  At CES Challenges, the theme is Flowers and at Basic  Grey Challenges we have a  photo inspiration with a theme of Spring.

Let's hope Spring is just around the corner to brighten our days! 
 For my card, I've chosen another Mo Manning delight called Nelly, found here at Mo's Digital Pencil.

Now I like colour, but this is bright even by my standards, check out those yellow tights and bright pink shoes - hmmm!!  Fashion was never my strong point!  My Basic Grey papers are Indie Bloom, purchased from Crafty Emma's store, along with the card blank, Cat's Life Press Sentiment, acrylic rhinestones, leaves and glamour dust (on the gypsophillia in the flower bouquet but not really showing up in my pics).
I've been after the little corner punch for ages and was finally able to track this down thanks to some help from  some blogging buddies!!

As always, at CES Challenges we have the fabulous weekly prize of a £10 voucher to spend in Crafty Emma's store (she has loads of gorgeous new papers in at the minute).
Over at Basic Grey Challenges we have our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamps offering a $25 dollar voucher to spend with them!

My fabulous teamies on both teams have made some stunning creations to inspire your creativity so check out the CES girlies' cards here and the BG girlies' here.
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Joanna Sheen - Spring
DP2 Challenge - Anything Goes (just for fun!)
Delightful Challenges - Spring Colours
I'm off to spend the day with my M&S girls to chat and eat and put the world to rights and boy, do I need it!  Enjoy your Saturday.
