Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring

Here is this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge .....

"Well we have snowdrops and crocus flowers in abundance here in South West Scotland and even some lambs in the fields so Spring is slowly approaching - which brings me to this week's challenge "Signs of Spring". This could be interpreted through your image, an embellishment or even your colour-scheme."

I thought the chicks in this image represented Spring very well, and I chose a Spring colour scheme for my card. The image is coloured with Distress Inks, and I based the layout on the gorgeous sketch from Stamp with Stampavie. Papers are DCWV Baby Boy with Core'dinations cardstock, Imaginisce rub-ons and Basic Grey ribbons. Used Fiskars Threading Water punch for the scalloped border and various flowers and brads from stash box. The basket of eggs is a stamp from the Whiff of Joy Spring Collection, and my trusty sewing machine was put into action too!

I feel I could fly to the moon today after yesterday's news .... except for a slight headache from the champagne that is!

Once again, a huge thank you for your lovely wishes. xxx
