It's Officially Spring!

The weather here in eastern PA has been GORGEOUS! Mid 70's, plenty of sunshine, and all of our neighbors were out yesterday doing some sort of yard work. We cleaned out our garage and man, I love how much room we now have! I won't have the heebies going out and doing laundry now! So, after we all came in and took a water break, I had a moment of inspiration and created this card. Believe it or not, it came together in less than 45 minutes!

It is for the following challenges:

Sketch: Delightful Sketches #17
Stamp Something: distressing. I sponged walnut ink over all edges to make them pop and to give a bit of vintage feel.
Caardvarks: Lacy Days. To use lace on your card
Our Creative Corner, All Sorts Challenge, and Crazy 4 Challenges: to make a Spring Card
Totally gorjuss: use ribbon
Sketch Saturday: the sketch (funny how 2 different blogs have virtually the same sketch this week!)
ABC challenges: q for quotation. Used Psalm 32:7 verse
