A wish for spring

     Spring, spring, our azaleas are in full bloom as well as the wisteria and I had a gorgeous purple petunia outlined in white open today in my planter.  Our beekeepers bees are filling my yard with there buzzing and the March wind is definitely roaring like a lion.  LOL  We want to see YOUR spring cards for this weeks challenge at Papercraft Star.
     For my card, I've pulled out one of my Lili of the Valley rubber stamps and colored the image up with Copics and Prismas.  I'm really enjoying the combination of the two mediums together.  There's more gorgeous MME papers.  Guess I should have warned you that you might need some sunglasses for this one.  LOL  I added lots of Stickles and some puff paint on her dandelions.
     We'd love to have you play along this week for your chance at some great digital downloads from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay.  It's Anitra's turn to showcase some images this week and you really need to pop over to the PCS blog and check out her project along with the rest of the DT.  There is some awesome inspiration to be seen there.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Incy Wincy--things with wings
Paper Creations Ink--things with wings
Let's Ink It Up--show us your flowers
