Spring?

Well it's cold, wet and windy here at the moment and all my poor daffs are now bent double in the stiff breeze.....forecast though says it will improve later today. Yesterday afternoon we had a glorious blue sky with fluffy white clouds - I manage a 5 mile walk late yesterday afteroon without my scarf!!! So warmer weather I hope is on the way finally.

I made this card for a family birthday. Background paper is by K and Co, matted onto DCWV green cardstock. Coredinations Whitewash paper used with the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder and then sanded. The geraniums image and the butterfly are both from Penny Black and all these were also mounted on the green cardstock before adding to the base card. I finished with 3 gems from my stash.
Have submitted this for the following challenges -
Pollycraft's theme is 'Anything Goes'
Little Red Wagon's theme is 'Rolling into Spring'
Pink Elephant's theme is 'Nature'
