Crazy4Challenges (C4C127)


Frances is our Crazy4Challenges hostess this month.  Today she asked us to think about Spring, a time of new 'life' such as babies, flowers.  As you can see here, I went with the flowers and the colors of spring.  In real life, the color of the leaves match the color of the orchid cardstock.  I tried to get a better 'colored' photo, but it was not a success.  Other than coloring the leaves, this was a 'put together' card.  I love the drama and the femininity of it.

Be sure to check out the Crazy4Challenges Blog.  You are sure to see some fresh, delightful cards there.

We here in CT had a taste of spring on Thursday.  We had temps approaching 70 degrees......rather warm for us at this time of the year.  It was a welcome reminder that spring really is on the way. 

Hope you too are getting a taste of spring......!!!!

I really like your image...so pretty and airy. I know what you mean about capturing colors with the camera. It works good most of the time but I've really had a workout with no success a few times.
We will be in the 70's most of next week..all but tomorrow. It will be 77 degrees one day..hope it inches up a little.
