Spring Is Here

Despite the cooler temperatures and the threat of snow, the calendar says that spring is here and I for one am ready to celebrate.  And yes, I made a card to show that.

I found a whole bunch of challenges that I think this card qualifies for so I am entering it in the following:

Mo's Digital Pencil  - 3 Punches
Crazy 4 Challenges - Spring
Bee Crafty - Spring
Secret Crafter - Spring has Sprung
All Sorts - Spring is in the air
The Pink Elephant - Spring
Crafty Catz - Spring
Frosted Designs - Think Spring with a Flower
Challenge Up Your Life - Flowers
Die Cut Dreams  - At Least 2 Punches
Daisy Doodles - Artist's Choice with Digi
Creative Cottage  - Flowers

The image was a generous freebie from Mo Manning for her group on Paper Craft Planet and has been coloured using a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The papers are both from my stash and the cardstock is Color Mates.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Other supplies used:  Border and Branch punches (Martha Stewart), Corner Rounder Punch (Marvy Uchida), Corner Punch & Emboss Punch (Ecstasy Crafts), Chalk (Mungyo), Ribbon (Michaels), Pearl Stickers (Recollections from Michaels), Pearl Spray (Michaels), Ribbon (Michaels), Flowers (Bridal Supply Store).
