In the spring...

Good morning...yes I'm still harping on about spring....we've had lovely sunshine here, temperatures starting to rise a little and the garden's waking up! For this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' the theme is 'green' - simples! Just include green and some stamping (digital image is fine!), how easy is that?
Personally I love green so I really enjoyed making this card! The cute image is a Mo Manning digi, which comes with the sentiment, She's coloured with copics, a tad of glossy accents on her wellies. Random snippets of green dp which I discovered in my (huge) drawer of 'leftovers'. The birds, fence and flower dies are all MB. The branch is stamped (using a magazine freebie) coloured with copics and fussy cut for those little birdies to perch on!
There's a fantastic prize of 4 digis to be won from this week's lovely sponsor -Flat Friends and I know you won' t want to miss the lovely creations made to inspire you this week, so click here to join the fun at Sweet Stampin'  this week.
Have a fab weekend!

Such a lovely image, Chris - your layout shows it off perfectly. Snowdrops are up here but no other signs of Spring here... it's cold, blowing a gale and dark enough to need the light on (and it's mid-morning)! xx
