Happy Spring

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  It sure is spring here in 'Bama, we've had quite a few thunderstorms the last several days.  I actually missed them when I was in England; I like a good thunderstorm.  So anyway, let's go for a spring card today:

Yep, these bright colors make me happy.  They're kinda like Baylor colors, so I think I know who I should send this to :)  I used the sketch from Retro Sketches:

Here I thought I had a good handle on the sketch and was following it pretty well, but somehow I ended up with the larger border on the bottom of my main image instead of the top.  Whoops.  I tried!

I also used the inspiration photo collage from Stampin' Celebration!:

This might be the first time I've ever played along over there, though I've lurked for a long time.  I just loved that one pic of the daffodils, those definitely remind me of England.  In the springtime, daffs would pop up all over our village, including our backyard.  Good thing they pretty much take care of themselves because I've got a black thumb.  I do love flowers, though!

Anyway, that's it for me today, peeps.  Cheers!

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz

With the letters, I LIKE the larger border on the bottom.

Very springy colors and they just all look super nice together. Great job!
