Celebrate Nature

I'm back to work in my studio after a marvelous weekend in San Diego, a Mother's Day gift from my daughter. We had perfect weather to enjoy the ocean and spent a fun day visiting the pandas at the San Diego Zoo. Now it's back to normal.
My card today was created for several challenges. At Cheery Lynn the challenge is dry embossing. I used the following Cheery Lynn dies on my card: large rose, miniature rose, ivy corner flourish, and build a flower 1. Sweet Stamps has a theme of spring. I think the bird (SweetStamps) and flowers are  a definite sign of spring. Simon Says Stamp is challenging us to show flower power. Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations challenge is birds of a feather. 
I am enjoying the blooming of spring flowers and the wonderful weather we are having in Chicago. I think spring has arrived.
