Spring Flowers

Greetings from Ohio where the weather is finally starting to warm up! According to our local weather, Northern Ohio will be in the upper 40's and low 50's this week. This means that all the snow we have will be melting and flowers will soon be emerging from the ground, YES!
I am so excited by warmer temps that I decided to create this lovely card designed by Regina Easter and sold by The Cutting Cafe.

I really enjoyed making this card and all the different colors used came together nicely with the craft paper used on the flower pot.

UPDATE: I am so excited! Regina Easter over at The Cutting Cafe has added my card as the Customer Spotlight. You can see it here:  Spring Flowers Customer Spotlight
