Celebrate

The arrival of spring......
I love spring more than any other season. The days are getting warmer ( perhaps a little too quickly, this year), the sun is up longer and everything looks greener and prettier and just, more vibrant. Time to celebrate :)
So here is my card,  welcome to the new season....

The papers are from, well, like most of my other papers, DCWV stacks. The background is from the Citrus collection matstock and the polka dotted paper is from the Fresh floral stack. The image is free and is actually a mardi gras coloring page that I found on this site

Sometimes, the most beautiful things in life are, actually, free :)




I embossed the paper using the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. Well, I know it is not the right season for that but doesn't it also look like exploding fireworks in the sky ? For the tag I used the nesting eyelet circle dies from Lifestyle crafts. Left the inside of the card simple....
Since the paper is very light, it should be no problem penning the sentiments right on to it. Submitting the card for the following challengesCard Positioning system
