Lily's Tulip for Springtime

Spring is starting to peek through those rainy clouds that we keep having and it's slowly starting to get warmer too (although I did have to de-ice my car the other morning and being as impatient as I am didn't wait for my windscreen to defrost before starting my windscreen wipers and tore the rubber off one of them. £17 later and I have a new wiper blade!)

Anyway I love making Springtime cards as it always makes me feel much happier and looking forward to warmer weather, so A Creative Romance's Spring Flowers Challenge was perfect for how I was feeling today! This card is also for Art by MiRan's Challenge #2 Anything Goes, Crafty Little Fairies Challenge to use a tag and Sketch & Stash's Challenge #135. My new stash is my new digi stamp and the patterned paper; everything else I've had for a while.

And here's my card using some bright yellow and pale blue - reminds me of the Spring sky!
