Spring eventually...

Hi there, sweet peeps! I feel happy every year when I can actually drop my boots and feel all those signs of spring, sun and warmth and grass peeking out from the ground; this long winter has been so depressing for me:(.
I made a happier card today just to cheer up and think it looks lovely, it sure does, chromatically at least:):

Our challenge theme for you this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Too has been chosen by my sweet friend Pat and I'm pretty sure we all agree with her choice:

Now, I may not have excelled at ribbons on my card today but I know I can't imagine one of my cards without them:).
I love merging images and when I picked this adorable Easter Kiko from my Mo Manning files, this Make It Crafty background suddenly came to my mind as the perfect scene for her. I actually had to buy this digi again because I lost it from my older computer. But I just love those daffodills! 

Card recipe:
Images: Mo Manning- Easter Kiko
Make it Crafty- Daffodill Dell
Coloring medium: promarkers/copics
DP: Cajoline Scrap- Easter papres/ Yellow papers
Embellishments: Wild Orchid flowers, punched leaves, ribbon,lace/WOC, butterfly/Craft-Us, pearls/Bunny Zoe's, eggs/stash
Sentiment: computer generated
Die cuts: Magnolia Doohikeys- Tilda lace and Heart Swirl, nestabilities- fancy tags 1, nestabilities grand ovals

I have listed my card here, in my Etsy shop.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Moving Along With The Times - Spring is in the Air, Crafting for all Seasons -Spring, Crafts and Me -Ribbons and Lace, Paper Shelter Challenge - Easter, Stampavie and More - Easter, Whimsy Inspiration -Stitching, Bearly Mine  Easter, Crafty Sentiments Hello Spring, Bunny Zoe's Crafts-Girly, Lexi's Creations -Easter

Awww, thank you so much for cheering me up with your beautiful bright card! The yellow and all those wonderful flowers are so springy and sunny ... love it! And you are completely right: the background is more than perfect for Easter Kiko and you coloured the images up to perfection, hun!
And of course I really know what you mean ... Today is the official beginning of spring, but the winter doesn't make any attempts to go finally! *sigh* Can't have the cold anymore...
