The Art of Spring

Tomorrow I am going to the Chicago Flower and Garden show. It's one of my favorite events of the year. There may be snow on the ground here, but when I walk into the hall at Navy Pier, it'll feel like spring for a few hours. With spring on my mind, I spent the afternoon creating this spring card. Flowers, foliage, and butterflies are all part of spring. Purple and lilac are  spring colors.
The  butterfly die and stamp and the  stained glass background stamp are from Heartfelt Creations. The image is from a collage sheet from The scalloped oval die is from Spellbinders. The sentiment, so uplifting and hopeful, is from Club Scrap. Hopefully, spring is really around the corner.
This card works with Hels' Sunday challenge from Ink on my Fingers which is Nature and with the March challenge from The Artistic Stamper which is "Spring has Sprung".
