Penny Black and More - March Challenge

Well I just can't believe that is finally March! Not really spring like over here yet (we are actually supposed to get more snow this weekend!), but the warmer weather isn't far now :-) I don't think I ever looked forward to spring as much as this year...

Since it's the first Sunday of the Month it is also time for the new Penny Black and More challenge. This month we'd like to see 

Something sweet.

This of course can be more than just sweet food, think sweet kids or babies, sweet smelling flowers, etc.

I used the stamp "you're a peach" which was illustrated by Mo Manning and is now available as a cling rubber stamp from Penny Black.

I colored her up with my copic markers, and used my cutterbee scissors to cut it out. I kept the card very CAS, by just adding a strip of washi tape to the right side, and a punched border. 
The sentiment is from a set by Flonzcraft, who is one of our generous sponsors this month. The butterflies are art of the stamp, I just placed them differently, since they were cut out too.
I used a stamp from the itty bitty background set (retired SU) behind the image.

I'd love to play along in the following challenges:

DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge -Image of a girl or lady
Seize The Birthday -Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Keep it simple
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes

Hope you'll join us this month at Penny Black and More, as usual we have some fabulous prizes to give away from our fabulous and very generous sponsors. Of course you may combine it with other challenges, and feel free to use any make stamps, just no digis.

Have a fabulous day!

Also looking forward to Spring here Ellie, although I have a horrid feeling we may also get some cold weather before it warms up properly.

A lovely card and proves that sweet, cute and CAS can blend together beautifully.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
