Are you feeling hoppy?

It's a lovely Spring day here in London - cold - but I don't mind that so much when it's all bright and sunshiney!! There's a new challenge today over at Scrap Creations and this week, instead of Going Grey, we're Going Green!!! I've got a real thing at the moment about making fun, children's cards and here's mine:

I've used the adorable 'Elvin the Toad' from Digital Delights who's our sponsor this week and I've coloured him with promarkers. The papers are freebies from a magazine this week but they're from Craftwork Cards. I've basically stuck a square of stripey paper onto the back of the spotty paper and then cut into it. I coloured the base card with a promarker and then mounted the papers onto the card. Then I made some paper springs and attached them to the back of a cut out Elvin, used foam pads to hold the triangles opened up and then stuck 'boingy' Elvin in the middle!! I also used a computer generated sentiment.
There's a surprising amount of 'Green' challenges going on this week, so I'm also entering my card into the following: The Corrosive Challenge Blog - challenge #106, Creative Inspirations Paint, Easy Craft Projects - challenge #33 and Card Makin' Mamas - challenge #16.
Hope you like my card - or it at least raises a smile! I hope you'll join in and I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment. Bye for now.......x
