Happy Spring!

I love this Mo Manning image, she made me smile when I first laid eyes on her and thought she could be celebrating anything.  I celebrate nice weather whenever we get it.  Before we know it, the temps will get into the 80's and 90's.

I went a little heavy on the glitter for the flowers and buttons.  I know even as I'm putting it on that it won't photograph well, just as it didn't here.  However, I love all the shimmer on the actual card so I'm holding to my decision to go all gung ho with it.  :)

Digi:  Mo Manning - A Big Whoop
Larger flower made with Spellbinders @ Heartfelt Creations
Small roses, buttons and pom pom from stash

I used last week's sketch at Crafts 4 Eternity, but I missed the deadline.  I did have a lot of fun with it though.
