Card for Challenge

We have had rain for days and days so I decided to do a cheerful card for this weeks challenge.
The new Webster Pages Ladies and Gents paper was used for the background.  My new Lattice Doily Die was cut smaller and a vine from Martha Stewart's Vine punch was use trailing up the right side.

I am testing some new Prima Flowers and thought these looked very nice on the Lattice. Birch leaves were punched as well as some butterflies which were stacked and added.    A pretty silk bow gave the card it's final touch.

Gorgeous card, Joan! That lattice is making me want to work in my garden (pond???). I know exactly what you mean about the rain! Am going to try to make my way down our driveway (huge rut!) to run some errands! Have a great day - hugs!

Nothing but rain here in Upstate NY too Joan but your card sure gave me a big smile. Not been a good week for dear friend passed away at only 60years young. Plus my Aunt just passed a few weeks ago...hard times. Hope you are doing okay after losing your mom. I lost mine three years ago. Thanks for the smile and pray for some sunshine in Ohio and NY. Hugs.

Joan, I just love your card, and we have had so much rain here too, it's nice to see a card with "Cheery Spring Colors". Hopefully, spring will truly be here soon.
