Hello Spring

Well according to the calendar it is 'Spring' and has been here for about 3 weeks....someone forgot to tell Mother Nature....it is overcast, rainy and a mere 40 degrees!  In order to bring a little 'spring' to my Butterfly Garden, I decided to make a card using both the Colour Q Challenge and the Retro Sketch Challenge for inspiration.

It's so nice to see these cheerful spring-time cards especially since spring has yet to make an appearance here either! I love how you mixed stripes with chevrons and capped it off with the colorful flowers! Thanks for joining us at colourQ!

This is a happy, cheerful card to wake up these dreary chilly days we've been having too! I think we're just going to jump right to summer! Thanks for playing with the CQC this week!
