Hello Spring!

I decided to make some "happy spring" cards for a few good friends this week. The weather has been so gorgeous-- above seasonal for use, for sure! For my card, I used both this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Coloured Kissing and Vannessa's Papertrey Princess Challenge: to include spring colours on my card.

I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic cream, simply chartreuse), stamps (beautiful butterflies, pretty peonies, tag sale #2) & dies (beautiful butterflies). The patterned paper is Crate Paper (floral) & My Mind's Eye (pink polka-dot).

Has spring arrived where you are?

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful! Love the colors, spring colors are always my favorite. Sadly no spring here...in fact we are getting buried under a foot or more of snow :( It's good for the moisture though. We had to come home a day early from our trip to miss the terrible driving conditons, we made it in time though. I can't wait for spring.
