Spring is in the air

With temperatures of about 17/18 °C spring has really arrived here on Crete. All the more reason to create a spring card. The word art is a digital image that I downloaded as a freebie at Paulette's blog, Create with TLC. I had already printed out both a large version and this small one, so all I had to do was find some matching papers (First Edition, Birdsong collection). I had also punched out the flowers from scraps ages ago.

The inspiration for this card came from this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches and the inspiration photo from the Paper Sundaes blog.
