Spring Colours

With all this cold, and for some snowy weather, we are all longing for Spring and the new growth and brightness it brings.
I hope my card will bring a bit of Springlike warmth to the poorly recipient.
I've used a very cute Lili of the valley stamped image,coloured with copics. The papers,been having fun with these, are called soft nostalgia,by hot of the press ,and wre the free gift with simply cards and papercrafts this month.
The blue flower was stamped onto spotty paper and layered with an added green leaf at the back, completing the spring look.

We haven't had any more snow so that is quite good for me and my shoveling but not so good for the ski-ing!
