Spring Flowers

I guess I was trying to think spring today. It has been raining for what seems like days. We were out earlier and when I was at the store I walked through a beautiful display of spring flowers. I wish I could describe how wonderful all the colorful flowers smelled. So I figured that I would just have to create my own spring flowers at home. I hope that you like it.

Would you like to make this card? Here is how to do it:
