Spring colors! :)

Hiya Friends,
So I am back again to share a card I have made and its in my fave Shabby chic style again :) ...I don't know about you people but I was kind of missing using soft colors !!! ...Well so can I just show you what I have created :)  ..Here's a pic of it :

 I am so in love with these colors so sharing an another view as well  ...Here goes :

 And a peek into how it looks on the inside as well :

 Okay now a little bit about my card ...I have used the Webster's Pages DP  for my base and I have distressed it using a small pair of scissors to create the whole shabby chic  look... Have used  various dies to make the frame ,Eiffel tower, flourish and leaves ....And have used the seam binding ribbon which I have hand colored :) ...The buttons that you see here are  hand made too ...I have made these following the Tutorial that Colleen has shared on the IBS blog and there is also a fun challenge based on it so do check out this challenge Here... And most Importantly  the colors of my card are inspired by the gorgeous color's of the Pretty Paper studio March Challenge...They have put up such a soft and beautiful palette that I  just had to make a card based on these colors ...Here's a look at them below :

I hope I was able to do justice to this lovely color scheme ....Do let me know you guys :)....
