Winter is upon us but Spring will soon be here

Well aren't there just tonnes of lovely Christmas around to admire at the moment?

I thought I would break the mould and give my pastel colours a bit of a work out with a more Spring like card.....and here it is using a lovely Lacy Sunshine digi that I printed off a while back and never quite got around to colouring.
I think these characters are so sweet and I particularly love the little frog with his flower's really nice to be able to colour him in with zesty yellows and greens at this time of year too!

As you can see I have kept my card layout very simple with small strips of patterned paper, cupeled with some punched flowers. I can't help thinking though, that this kind of layout would have had more impact with more contrasting backing papers...maybe red or green....but of course then we are back to Christmas again!

There are a few challenges that I would like to enter with this card, so here they are:

Thanks for stopping by today.

  4. Nice change Sharon. Can't wait to make non Christmas cards again. I have made hundreds of them and I am now getting bored. Thanks for giving us all a lift with your card!:) Love the frog, he really made me smile! Have a great weekend, hugs, Carol S.xx
