Hi, There!

I can imagine you are hoping for spring as much as I am if you are in the NorthEast of USA and maybe spring is not hopping along too fast for you somewhere else in this vast beautiful world of ours!!  I just have to make springtime cards and /or mixed media projects!!!  We still have so much snow here and the temps are dropping to the teens and single digits with the wind chill factors.

So here is my "Spring Time" card, thanks for visiting, hope you enjoy the rest of your day/or evening, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Sharing this card with:
Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge - Month of March 2017 - Easter/Spring
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Layer It Up

Sequins added along with stardust, liquid pearls.  Flowers I painted some to match her hair.  All flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Ribbons and doily from stash.  Tag on front has been popped up with a 3D foam as the flower inside the card.  I wrote "Spring Time" on the tag and tied a gold cord around the tag to match the gold in the top ribbon.
