Spring is sure to follow

Slowly the snow is melting, but I'm sooooo ready for spring! I think others are too, because a lot fo the challenge blogs have asked for spring cards this week. I found this little quote at the Quote Garden, one of my favorite places to go for a sentiment.



The background is the color collage technique, but the main technique featured here is the Faux Vellum technique; both techniques are from the Technique Junkie newsletter. My torn and distressed edges meet the Saturday Spotlight and Sherrod Studio challenges, my spring theme fits the Stamp Something challenge, and the dragonfly fits the Belli Challenge. If you would like this ATC or one very similar, just play in the TJ ATC swap.
