Think Spring

We have been enjoying beautiful days and warm weather in my area. In fact the temperature reached 80 degrees again today. Spring is here! For my card, I wanted to use some of the colors of the early Spring blooming flowers. My daffodils and hyacinths have already finished blooming.
The card is 6 1/2" X 5" white cardstock that I covered with a pretty paper from a Miss Elizabeth's pack.
Cricut Cartridges:
Walk in my Garden - Daffodil is on page 93 and cut at 2 3/4 inches. The hyacinth is on page 95 and cut at 2 inches.
Stretch Your Imagination-- Spring in on page 62 and cut at 1 1/2 inches.
Cuttlebug Folders -- Birds and Swirls, Polka Dots
Martha Stewart French Scroll Punch Around the Page

The Cuttlebug Spot -- All Tied Up -Twine challenge. I do not have any of that gorgeous twine so I used Pearl cotten for CrossStitch. I intertwined two pieces and added it down the side of the yellow mat and also for the bow. Maybe I could be lucky and win the great prize this week-- a grab bag of embellishments which includes twine!!

Creative Sisters Monday Challenge - For Challenge # 3, Patti is asking us to "Think Spring". Paper Wishes is the sponsor this week! I would love to win that great package too! Just a reminder the, challenge ends Sunday night so hurry on over with your entry.

Hope you enjoy my card!

Sending Happy Spring wishes to everyone and sharing a photo of my Lady Banks Rose. There are so many more buds to open! Enjoy!
