Spring greens!

Well, Spring has definitely sprung now April is here - that's the first quarter of the year flown by!  It doesn't feel that spring-like today (a very grey and dreary day) but my card should brighten things up a touch.  This is done using one of my few Stampotique rubber stamps - I do a lot of digital stamping but still have time for the "other ones" :)  The challenge at Stampotique is to use spring colours and I hope I've achieved that here.
The large flower was cut with my Silhouette and I curled the edges of the petal up to give a bit more interest.  Had to add a bit of dictionary paper in the background (I love text!) - I recently bought an old Websters dictionary on one of our junking trips so I now have a huge stash of pages to use :)

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges -

Thanks for stopping by - hope you're getting some Spring sunshine where you are !
