Is Spring finally here?

A lovely day here today - and why is it that when the weather is good you always perk up and seem to have more energy??!!

To mark the start of what appears to be Spring (finally) in my little corner of the world, here's an Easter/Spring type card!
This was a quick one made for the Macmillan stash.

A bit of a mish mash here - images from several different places, two coloured with promarkers,one pre coloured digi and a computer generated sentiment.
White squares are snippets of textured linen and to make sure I cut them all the same size I used a small square nestie - my straight cutting is not the best even when measured with a ruler!
Just layered them all onto  snippets of green card.
The background green gingham paper is another old one from the stash layered onto the same green card.
Before mounting it all onto the base card I used up the last bit of this lovely green ruffle ribbon  then once glued added 3 green pearls.
Snippets used so another visit to the Playground for me!(Well the sun is shining isn't it!)

Hope the sun now stays out for a few days wherever you are! xx
