Spring Smile

Hello , welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are going to have just the best weekend .
I managed to create a card today for a challenge " Spring" theme for craftysentiments

Now I figured that Spring is like Autumn , an  in between season . Sometimes bright and sunny , sometimes cool not so warm . That's where I drew my inspiration from . The season of Spring itself .

The card base of Very Vanila and the first layer of Crumb Cake represent the mildness of Spring . In contrast,  the yellow dotty designer series paper from the Brights Collection , the bright Melon Mambo and the Whisper White are the hint of the warmth of coming Summer. The jug of flowers is  from the set A Flower For All Seasons. The sentiment is from set Fabulous Phrases. The little daisys at the bottom are from Hero Arts. I embossed the first layer to add texture and added jute to tie the elements together.
hope that you found this card to be worth a visit to my blog . Thank you for calling in .
 Am entering this in the challenge.

Catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne.

Another great card, Shirley-Anne, love the dull and bright in it. You have such a knack for doing that... I must learn that, too. The image is so very sweet and the jute looks great. The daisies at the bottom add a lovely touch to complete the pretty card.
