Challenges Mar 26, 10 - Faux Batik Thanks

Well I was able to combine several challenges with this card. Would have had more if I had read one of the challenges correctly - sheesh. Oh well just have to do another one. BIG GRIN

So this card covers:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC59) - Faux Batik
Wednesday Stamper - Spring
The Wild Flower Patch (WFWC6) - Ribbon & Handmade Flower
S2G (Twisted Thursday #49) - Buttons
Simon Says Shimmery with Easter or Spring
Fab 'n' Funky It's all in the Technique
Creative Cottage #3 Sparkle
Totally Paper Crafts #9 Pink & Green
Cute Card Thursday #105 create with Dimension
Quirky Crafts #24 Flowers
Crafty Cardmakers #17 Spring into Spring
Pollycraft Monday #36 Sparkly Things
Magical Crafts Fortnightly #11 Spring or Easter
Charisma Cardz #12 Spring has Sprung
The Secret Crafters #76 Pink, Green & flowers
The Cute & Girly Spring is in the Air

Love the faux batik background I made. It's been ages since I made one and it was nice to revisit the technique. I used a Spellbinder's Label 6 which I haven't used before and have been itching to use. Finally used some of my Dress-It-Up buttons that I usually hoard... So all in all I'm glad for the various challenges that made be do and use things.
Added glimmer on the white flowers with some Ritz micro fine glitter. When the flowers come out, spring has sprung. BIG GRIN

Also use Quietfire Design rubber
