Hi, there and Happy Spring to come - I think!

The first day of spring is to begin here on Wednesday.   Now this post will be up tonight and outside we have a snowstorm going on!!!  So I hope my spring card brings some warmer weather soon.  I want to see some pretty flowers like this cute little girl is enjoying.   This is called "Springtime" by the talented Krista Smith!  This was one of those cards that was fun to create from beginning to end.  Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope to be back with another card before the week is out!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

CAS - Color and Sketch Challenge #16 - "Sketch to follow" - this is a really cool sketch

No Matter Which Challenge #7  "Anything Goes" - yes easy peasy;)
Saturated Canary Challenge #39 - "Read All About It" - I made a book with spring greetings inside for this challenge

Card Recipe
Digi  Image by Krista Smith/Saturated Canary called "Springtime" I colored her with my Copic markers and I just had to color her hair in a hue of violet!!
I used my new papers from Graphic 45 called A Place In Time and also from Secret Garden - love these papers!  The corners on the image are from Secret Garden and I made a book from A Place In Time and each page has a  Spring Greeting.  The butterflies I cut out from the same paper and mounted to the image.  Used a white gel pen here and there and also my liquid pearl for her hair.
