Okay, so I go from not a peep for a week to two posts today. I guess when it rains it pours. Speaking of weather I am noticing Spring is springing. Well, at least in the card world and I am no exception.
I had this card in my brain for awhile now when I saw the theme for Paper Players #234- Think Spring. Then I saw the sketch challenge for the Paper Craft Crew card sketch #134 (PCCCS #134). My gears were turning with ideas! I also saw the challenge from Shopping our Stash (SOS #191) to use your oldest hardware; well, I am in. The silver clouds are flowers that I cut in half. I bought those probably 11 years ago! Just married, no kids, in our apartment with all the money in the world to spend. HA! Those were the days!
The stars aligned and all these wonderful challenges spawned today's card. I love the cheery and graphic nature of this design! All the patterned papers work cohesively together to form this very springy and bright card.

Card size: A2- 4.25" x 5.5"

to a colorful rainbow.
|Opening up again to blank space|
Perfect for a personal note.
All the items were pieced together using a motley of papers I had laying around. The colors, I believe, are perfect for spring and sends the message of a new beginning. The sentiment is ideal for the recipient who is just getting back on her feet.. She is on her way up again and I think this card will definitely give her the encouragement she needs.
Well that is all for now. Thank you again for stopping by and please don't forget to leave me a comment. They make my day a bit more, well, cheery!
All the best,
