Spring is a comin!

 It is a nippy 40 ish here today West of Chicago , but the sun is out!  Yippee!!!  Spring is coming!
 So, I grabbed a floral image by Designed2Delight and whipped up a cheery card- for a friend who is just starting chemo- I hope it will brighten her day!

  I am not usually a yellow card maker, but this yellow paper screamed -use me, use me...... it is called Sunshine Yellow column and has embossed lines side to side- adds nice texture.  The image is paper pieced with a Technique Junkies background I made a long time ago. The flowers are colored with Copics and the green is not so gray IRL.....  The tops of the flowers have a second layer and some of the leaves are 'curled' before I added adhesive giving the flowers a touch of dimension. Sentiment is by SU.

Challenges:
By the Cute and Girly-Springtime
Sir Stampalot-Spring is in the air-plus,  use yellow and green
Crazy Challenge- Here comes spring
 Incy Wincy-Spring is in the air
Aly's Sunday Challenge- Get well or Give Support

This is beautiful! Once the daffodills are flowering you really know Spring is here, that's why they are one of my favourite flowers.
