Spring Flowers

Sharon Johnson's Friday challenge is to make a card or project that will bring some signs of spring, new life, fresh air and warmer temps to those of us still cooped up inside. Be sure to jump on over to Sharon's site for a list of the other gals that are participating in this challenge.
You can also particpate and Sharon explains it at the beginning of the challenge,

When I think of spring, I think of birds chirping, flowers blooming and even a butterfly fluttering. This was the idea behind the creation of the card shown above.

I just received several new stamp sets from Inkadinkado (I will be featuring some on Monday)

and I loved the flowers, butterflies and branches. I thought they mixed and matched very well.

Do any of you remember when wearing Blue and Green together was a huge big NO NO? Or red and pink and stripes and plaids. Well something happened over the years, because those colors are beautiful together and I love mixing them. What do you think?

My little polka dotted butterfly is hard to see, but on the card it really is a nice finishing touch.

Spring would be nice. HOwever, we are supposed to get snow- REAL snow, the make-a-snowman-and-go-sledding-stay-home-from-school kind!- tonight and tomorrow and I am looking forward to that first.

Blue and green together was always ok around here- I went to a "preppy" school.

Please check my blog when you get a chance.
