Think Spring

Good morning all,

You might not get the feeling it's spring when you look out of the window (I certainly don't!) but this card was all about spring! My cousin just had a baby boy and with that in mind I wanted to make a less traditional baby card to send her. I used all my lovely DP scraps were still lying on my desk leftover from previous projects and which I hadn't cleared away yet. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out AND my desk is a little cleaner to boot ;)

As it is the beginning of the month, there is a new release over at Digital Delights. I've used Flying Roxster which I found such a cute image and perfect for little boys' cards.
