Times to Cherish

Good morning, I hope that you are all off to the start of a wonderful week. The temps have dropped a lot around here over the last few days and in some parts of Ontario north of here they have actually received quite a dumping of the pesky white stuff. They can keep it, I want spring.

I just thought that I would pop by and quickly share a card with you today before I head off for work. This card came about almost by accident (well a card of some type or another would have come of it). I had coloured up the image a few days before and I was playing around making some card blanks based on some older sketches. I happened to set this image on top of the card to check sizing and low and behold it suited the card perfectly. I have accented the card with some punched leaves and butterflies and a few co-ordinating flowers to quickly finish it off.
I must say, I was happy with how easy it was.

Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you, so please leave a little comment to let me know you were here. I will be back in the next day or so with another card to share.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
