Spring in Paris

 Just Inspirational - Flowers
Crazy4Challenges Colour - Orchid


Good day

Slowly you can see spring is starting to show in the Northern Hemisphere with the challenges of spring colours and flowers popping up. Here in South Africa, we had some European weather the past few days.....it has been raining, almost non stop and for us it is kind of depressing. We seldom see more than 2 days consecutive rain, so by day 3/4 we are getting depressed. I even went walking the dogs in the rain this morning to feel better. It gives me some time to craft though.
This is Effie Trinket from Sassy Studio Design and she's the red carpet for this month's progressive challenge over on SSD's Facebook page. The theme is to add flowers. She looks so French, since it is the fashion capital of the world. I was triggered by Crazy4Challenges' colour of show some orchid and this is the last piece of this beautiful designer paper. The Eiffel Tower and Handbag is from my Sizzix Hero Art stamp & die-cut set. The sentiment is from Desert Diva and is Afrikaans for Happy Birthday! Flowers punched with X-cut punches and I added some rhinestones.
