Has spring arrived?

Well I don't think so, even though there are lots of pretty snowdrops popping up everywhere.

However, at Make My Monday, Spring has arrived.  This is our theme for the month of March, and this week we would like to see Spring Flowers on your project.

This is my card, and you will see that I have taken a slightly different tack on this - but to me spring in Paris is the time when it is overflowing with flowers everywhere - bulbs, cherry trees along the streets- just so pretty.

My base card is Tim Holtz Distress Card, and I have topped it with s sheet of Prima paper which I have added a few extra swirls to.  My image is Hero Arts.  The background is distress inks, with stamping in archival black.  The flowers are coloured in pencils.  Pearls and flowers are from stash.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Paper Creations Ink - Spring is in the Air,
St Lukes Charity Challenge - Spring into Spring
Gingerloft - Spring
The Paper Players - Spring has Sprung
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
Pollycraft - Spring has Sprung
PanPastel Challenge - Use a stamped image
Hiding in my Craft Room - Bring on some Spring

I also have to say a very big THANK YOU to two challenges this week, as I have just learnt that I was chosen as the winner at Paper Creations Ink, and was one of the runners up at St Luke's Charity Card Challenge.
