Signs of Spring

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for my beach hut and bunting card.
This card is an 8 x 8 card so I decided to use this gorgeous Sugar Nellie image by Elisabth Bell as it is a large image and perfect for this size card. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Papers are HOTP Vacation, a pack I forgot I had. I have used a large MS border punch, baker's twine, Memory box leafy branch and butterfly dies. I have also added a sentiment from Ally Paly coloured to match and a bit of doodling.
