Spring Is Here!

Here I am again, with my second week as Guest Designer for Tuesday Throwdown. There's a fun challenge for you today, as we celebrate spring! The theme is spring cleaning! That's right, clean out your stash and scraps, and use something that's at least 6 months old on your card or other project. We're sponsored by The Stamping Boutique this week, so you're in for a real treat! Your chance to win some goodies from The Stamping Boutique for playing along, so be sure not to miss out!

Do some spring cleaning of your own and link up your creation at Tuesday Throwdown! You just might be our winner!

My card uses the Spring image by The Stamping Boutique, and colored with Promarkers. I used pastel spring like colors. The leaves were punched with a punch by Martha Stewart. I made the flower with punhed shapes. The flower center is a button recycled from old clothing I threw away. I used the
sketch at Sketches By Carly for my card layout.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
