April Elemental Inspiration

 Hello Crafters.
Its the first Friday of the month which means its a elemental inspiration challenge at Daring Cardmakers from the lovely Nat this week.
Look at the sweet image.  I hope this will inspire you create some Easter/spring cards
Remember you need to pick at least three elements from the picture.
The elements that I picked were the colours, cake, flowers and the little ducklings.  Well it was how fluffy the ducklings looked that inspired me.
I found some lovely Easter downloads from Printable Heaven which I though were great for the cake element.
The designer papers are a mixture of some digital downloads from The Lovely Studio and a paper pad from Docrafts from their Bellissima Mothers Day Collection.

I made the flower using the In Bloom Squeeze punch from Fiskars.  I then added a fluffy pom pom to the centre.
These punches are so easy to use as you can see exactly where you are punching and the squeeze action makes it even easier.
I hope you can stop by the Design Team Blogs for more inspiration and have a lovely weekend.
