Is It Spring Yet....

Hello to all my sweet friends out there in Blogland..
I am back today with a quick little post about a card
I made for three different challenges..  I usually don't do this.
But it just happened to work out that way..



I just love this photo..  It is so happy and such a pretty flower.
It just says spring is here..  Doesn't it..


Here is my card I have created..  Like I said it is for
3 different challenges.. 

 
I am playing along with CR84FN I always love all the fun and beautiful
colors they come up for there challenges.  This week colors are Orange
Yellow and Kraft..    The sketch I used is from I Heart to 2 Stamp.
I am also entering my card into The Kraft Journal. This weeks challenge
is Spring Fling.




I have had this stamp forever.. It is from My Favorite Things.
Perfect little stamp for spring..


A pretty flower with ribbon and and twine to top it off.
And a whole lot of stitching..



Well that's all I have for today.. I have to get to work..
I am running a little late.

Below are the inspirational photo's from the
challenge blogs I entered..






Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look..

Hugs, Linda

Oh, Linda! This is just fabulous! I love it to pieces! What a cool sketch that is. I think you completely rocked it, and that color combo, both. the extra layering and the stitching add such great visual detail, and I adore the twine bow and flowers. Sweet floral bouquet, too. the gems add such a nice touch.
I'm so happy you played along with us at the Kraft Journal this week. :)
