Spring Anyone?

Seems like everyone I talk to, at least those in the Northern hemisphere,
has the winter blues and they're longing for spring.  
What do card makers do?  We create some spring on a card and it wasn't hard to do with the beautiful card that Muse Danielle Flanders provided for inspiration for CASE Study #180.

 This is my first time participating in a CASE Study challenge and
I really enjoyed it. I was inspired by the colours, though I went for deeper
shades and also that cute little frame - I had some cardboard
packaging lying around and used Lifestyle Crafts Inverted
Squares Nesting Dies to create a little chipboard frame.
The base is stencilled with SU's Lucky Limeade and then splattered
with matching watercolor paint.
The roses are created with My Favorite Things Rolled Rose
Die-namics.  Other dies include Elizabeth Craft Leaf
Dies and Memory Box Perched Reed Bird Die.
I've also entered this card into the Ways To Use It Challenge
at Splitcoaststampers - to use anything that appears on a
calender - the "2" in this little sentiment from
Flourishes Sentimental Favorites means my card
qualifies for that! Thanks for stopping by today!
