Hello Spring

 Happy first day of Spring!!
I can hardly believe it is here, now if it would just warm up
it is 26 degrees as I write this, BRRR!
Lots of my spring flowers have sprouted and some
have even bloomed, poor things, they have been covered in snow
at least four times, everything is about a month or more early
which is fine IF it was warmer out!

Anyhow I have a pretty card today just for Spring!

When I saw The Flower Challenge this month was
use die cuts or a stencil I knew I had to join in!

I stenciled this card using Altenew's Garden Days.
A favorite layered stencil that has since been discontinued.
You will see this lovely floral come up on my blog down the road in other colors!
I added a few Pink Fresh Studio gems as I noticed a small ink smudge and these are certainly good for covering that up
as well as adding a bit of sparkle!

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous first day of SPRING!

Wow, that is one magnificent bloom! Stencils have come a long way, baby! I keep looking at the detail in the bloom. So pretty! Yikes, 26 degrees! It's wet here again. Maybe LuLu and I will get out between rain showers.
