FF Fortnight Challenge-Bows and Buttons

Hi everyone! It's time for the Forever Friends Fortnight Challenge.

This fortnight our challenge is to use Bows and Buttons and we are sponsored by

who are kindly giving 5 digi images to our winner!

The DT were sent some lovely images to play with and I used the fantastic background image "Field background". Isnt it fab! It was brilliant to colour with my PM's too and I can think of soo many ways to use it!
So this is what I can up with:
I'm quite impressed with myself this week! I went for a very spring vibe with the colours and love the way it has turned out! Its not what I had in my mind at first but I suppose that's what being creative is all about - going with the flow!

Close up of my cute FF bear that I bought a few weeks ago at The Range. I used little flat backed pearls for the centre of the flowers.

Close up of the fab image. I realised when colouring that I cant colour skies to save my life lol so cut out the image and backed it onto some blue card. Gives it a bit of a 3D look too.

So we hope you can play along with us!
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges into:
So back to school tomorrow :/ and Im teaching all day - thats gonna be fab aint it lol! Pretty hyper kids I can imagine!
Oh well only 5 weeks of placement left lol! So if you dont hear from me I havnt dropped off the face of the Earth Im just in a corner planning lol not being able to tough my craftt stash!

Hope everyone is well
