Spring??

Well, it feels like it today. The sun is shining and the snow is melting fast. It will be so nice to see some grass.

Today's card is based on this weeks color challenge at The Play Date Cafe and the combined challenge on the CASE Study challenge blog as well for Create: to make cards with border punches. Here's the color challenge:

And here's my card...I even got to venture outside to take the picture.

This flower is from Prima and has been in my flower box for years and years. Soooo glad to finally use it. The green paper is from Dream Street and the newsprint is First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up...love it! The butterfly is from SU (Bliss) as is the lace. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks so much for taking a peak...I'm off to enjoy the pseudo spring day out there!
