Hi  everyone!
I'm happy you are here and hope your weekend is going to be full of sun and joy!
For today I made a colorful card just to express how happy I am spring is eventually here. Well, my stamps have not arrived yet but i guess it is a sign that I should be using my  older ones first because they are all gorgeous. I just love this Tilda with curls  from, I think, the Wedding Collection. I thought I should use an "accessory" such as a gate or something but I not so happy with the result. The card is thus too complicated, but well, so it's life:)) I really admire people who can make CAS, I'm really hopeless there. 
I've tried to follow Jane's lovely sketch at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and get inspired from Angela's gorgeous  photo at Magnolia-licious. Well, at least I've tried:)
I have just bought a new digital paper pack from Barely Mine Designs called Spring Flight. They are just adorable.Such a pity I've pretty much covered them:(.

Stamp: Magnolia- Tilda with curls
Coloring medium: Promarkers
Papers; Bearly Mine- Spring Flight
Embellishments; flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, feather, ribbon, corner peel-offs, lace from stash
Dies/punches; Magnolia swirl die, Magnolia romantic die, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, MarianneDesign circles, nestabilities scalloped circle

Challenges for my card:
