WMS Blog Party - Spring theme

For the first time I am taking part in Waltzing Mouse Stamps Blog Party - the theme was spring, but I realise my stamp collection is definately lacking in the 'image' department - to be rectified asap ! Anyway, for my spring themed card I went for a lovely combination of spring colours, although I used the Vintage Ornaments set ! I intended my ovals to be egg-like for Easter, but maybe only I realise that. LOL
Here in my little corner of Canada is has been pretty cold for a while, we have a lot of snow, so I am really looking forward to the arrival of a colourful spring :-)

  11. From one BCer to another, come on, Spring! Mind you, I cannot complain being in the capital. Great card and inventive use of a Christmas stamp. I like the stripes and the twine and the placement of the sentiment. Fun!
